LAW OF INCREASING OPPORTUNITY COST: The proposition that opportunity cost, the value of foregone production, increases as more of a good is produced. This "law" can be seen in the production possibilities schedule and is illustrated graphically through the slope of the production possibilities curve. It generates the distinctive convex shape of the curve, making it flat at the top and steep at the bottom.

INFLATION PROBLEMS: Two notable problems are associated with inflation: uncertainty and haphazard redistribution. Inflation, especially inflation that varies from month to month and year to year, makes long-term planning quite difficult. Prices, wages, taxes, interest rates, and other nominal values that enter into consumer, business, and government planning decisions can be significantly affected by inflation. Moreover, inflation tends to redistribute income and wealth in a haphazard manner; some people win and some people lose. But this redistribution might not that desired by society, failing to promote any of the basic economic goals of efficiency, equity, stability, growth, or full-employment.

TWO-SECTOR KEYNESIAN MODEL

A Keynesian model of the macroeconomy that includes the two private sectors, the household sector and the business sector. This Keynesian model variation, often termed the basic Keynesian model or the private sector Keynesian model, captures the interaction between induced consumption expenditures and autonomous investment expenditures. This model is commonly used to illustrate the basic workings of Keynesian economics, including equilibrium, disequilibrium, and the multiplier. Equilibrium is identified as the intersection between the C + I line and the 45-degree line. Two related variations are the three-sector Keynesian model and the four-sector Keynesian model.
