DECISION LAG: In the context of economic policies, a part of the implementation lag involving the time it takes for policy makers to determine the appropriate policy to undertake. Another part of the implementation lag is the action lag. For fiscal policy, this involves Congress and the President debating, passing, and signing legislation that changes government spending or taxes. For monetary policy, this involves a meeting among the members of the Federal Reserve Open Market Committee. The decision lag is usually shorter for monetary policy than fiscal policy.

GOODS: When used without an adjective modifier (like "final" goods or "intermediate" goods), this generically means physical, tangible products used to satisfy people's wants and needs. This term good should be contrasted with the term services, which captures the intangible satisfaction of wants and needs. As such, you will frequently see the plural combination of these two phrases together "goods and services" to indicate the wide assortment of economic goods produced using the economy's scarce resources. As you might imagine this general notion of wants and needs satisfying goods and services pops up throughout the study of economics.

     See also | services | scarcity | unlimited wants and needs | limited resources | scarce resource | satisfaction | wants | needs | utility | asset | wealth | production | consumption | final good | intermediate good | gross domestic product | good types | barter |

ALLOCATION EFFECT

A change in the allocation of resources caused by placing taxes on economic activity. By creating disincentives to produce, consume, or exchange, taxes generally alter resource allocations. The allocation effect is typically used when governments seek to discourage the production, consumption, or exchange of particular goods or activities that are deemed undesirable (such as tobacco use or pollution). This is one of two effects of taxation. The other (primary) is the revenue effect, which is the generation of revenue used to finance government operations.
