IN-KIND PAYMENT: A payment, usually in exchange for the productive efforts of resources, that takes the form of goods and services rather than the economy's standard monetary unit (that is, dollars). In other words, resource owners are compensated with a portion of the output that they helped to produce. The standard method of compensation, which is illustrated by the circular flow model, is for a firm to pay resource owners using money revenue received from selling its production. Hence most factor payments are monetary payments. However, in some circumstances firms and resource owners find it more convenient to use actual production for compensation, eliminating the middle sell-production-for-money step

EXCLUDABILITY: The ability to keep people who don't pay for a good from consuming the good. For some goods, it's very easy (that is, the cost is low) for owners or producers to keep others from enjoying the benefit of a good. Examples of this abound, like candy bars, shoes, houses, computers, and well a bunch of other stuff. Other goods, however, prove more difficult to keep the nonpayers away. Examples of these include oceans, national defense, and fireworks displays. Excludability is one of the two key characteristics of a good (the other is rival consumption) that distinguishes between common-property goods, near-public goods, private goods, and public goods.

UNEMPLOYED

The condition in which a resource (especially labor) is NOT actively engaged in a productive activity, but IS actively seeking employment. This general condition forms the conceptual basis for one of the three categories used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) when classifying an individual's labor force status--employed persons. The other two BLS categories are employed persons and not in the labor force.
