ABSOLUTE POVERTY LEVEL: 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 a relative poverty level.

EXCESS SUPPLY: A disequilibrium condition in a competitive market in which the quantity supplied is greater than the quantity demanded, hence there's "extra" supply. Pointy-headed economists generally use the more technical term surplus rather than excess supply. The reason, of course, is that surplus has two syllables and excess supply has four. The time saved in pronouncing two syllables rather than four is a definite efficiency plus for the entire economy.

REAL GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT

The total market value, measured in constant prices, of all goods and services produced within the political boundaries of an economy during a given period of time, usually one year. The key is that real gross domestic product is measured in constant prices, the prices for a specific base year. Real gross domestic product, also termed constant gross domestic product, adjusts gross domestic product for inflation. A contrasting measure is nominal gross domestic product, which does not adjust for inflation.
