BUDGET SURPLUS: An excess of budgetary revenues over expenditures. This seemingly rare event is in fact commonly practiced by many state and local governments -- albeit often because of constitutional mandates. The federal government has even accomplished this feat once or twice. Consumers operate a budget surplus whenever they're able to put a little bit of their income into saving.

INVESTMENT LINE: A graphical depiction of the relation between business investment expenditures and national income that forms one of the key building blocks for Keynesian economics. The slope of this line is positive, greater than zero, less than one, and goes by the name marginal propensity to invest. The vertical intercept of the investment line is autonomous investment. The aggregate expenditures line used in the Keynesian cross is obtained by adding this investment line, as well as, government purchases and net exports, to the consumption line. The investment line is also combined with the saving line in saving-investment model used in Keynesian economics.

FACTORY

The physical capital (building and equipment) at a particular location used for the production of goods and services. A factory, or plant, is usually a relatively large production operation (compared with something smaller, like a shop). While factory and firm are occasionally used synonymously they are not really the same. A given firm might own more than factory and a given factory might be owned by more than one firm.
