 AmosWEB means Economics with a Touch of Whimsy!
 ABSOLUTE POVERTY: The amount of income a person or family needs to purchase an absolute amount of the basic necessities of life. These basic necessities are identified in terms of calories of food, BTUs of energy, square feet of living space, etc. The problem with the absolute poverty level is that there really are no absolutes when in comes to consuming goods. You can consume a given poverty level of calories eating relatively expensive steak, relatively inexpensive pasta, or garbage from a restaurant dumpster. The income needed to acquire each of these calorie "minimums" vary greatly. That's why some prefer relative poverty.

ELASTICITY AND DEMAND SLOPE: The slope of a straight-line demand curve, one with a constant slope, has constantly change elasticity. No two points on a straight-line demand curve as the same elasticity. The point of intersection between the demand curve and the vertical, price axis is perfectly elastic (E = ∞). The intersection point between the demand curve and the horizontal, quantity axis is perfectly inelastic (E = 0). The exact middle, or midpoint, of the demand curve is unit elastic (E = 1). The segment between the midpoint and the price-axis intercept is relatively elastic (1 < E < ∞). The segment between the midpoint and the quantitY-axis intercept is relatively inelastic (0 < E < 1).

Average physical product, usually abbreviated APP, is found by dividing total physical product by the quantity of the variable input. Average product, which more often goes by the shorter name average product (AP), is one of two measures derived from total physical product. The other is marginal physical product.
