INVESTMENT, PRODUCTION POSSIBILITIES: Investment typically refers to the purchase of productive capital by business in anticipation of increasing production and (presumably) generating more profit.

Production possibilities analysis can be used to illustrate the tradeoff between consumption and capital as a movement along a production possibilities curve.

This isn't me! What am I?

John Maynard Keynes was born the same year Karl Marx died.
"You have to find something that you love enough to be able to take risks, jump over the hurdles and break through the brick walls that are always going to be placed in front of you. If you don't have that kind of feeling for what it is you're doing, you'll stop at the first giant hurdle. "

-- George Lucas
