RELATIVELY INELASTIC: An elasticity alternative in which relatively large changes in price cause relatively small changes in quantity. In other words, quantity is not very responsive to price. Relatively inelastic should be compared with other elasticity alternatives--relatively elastic, perfectly inelastic, perfectly elastic, and unit elastic.

LOCKOUT: A plant or factory that is closed temporarily, because it's owners are trying to gain a negotiating advantage over the employees' union. A lockout is commonly used by a company's management if they suspect the union is planning to strike. A lockout by management before the union strikes is much like a pre-emptive military attach that tries to hit the enemy hard, fast, and first.

ADVERSE SELECTION

An inefficient, bad, or adverse outcome of a market exchange that results because buyers and/or sellers make decisions based on asymmetric information. This commonly results in a market that exchanges a lesser quality good, what is termed the market for lemons. Two related problems resulting from asymmetric information are moral hazard and the principal-agent problem. Two methods of lessoning the problem of adverse selection are signalling and screening.
