QUASI-RENT: The payment that is received by a resource of production activity over the opportunity cost in the short run. The notion of quasi-rent is similar to economic rent, or economic profit, which is payment or revenue received over opportunity cost. The key difference is that quasi-rent is a short-run phenomenon. While quasi-rent is "extra" payment received in the short run, such payment might be essential to keep the resource or production activity in the long run. An example is the quasi-rent received due to the patent on a technological innovation. In the short run, the revenue received can be considered as profit in excess of the opportunity cost of production. However, in the long run this extra revenue motivates innovators to develop new technology. Without quasi-rent the innovations would not occur.

LUXURY TAX: A tax on relatively expensive goods that are typically purchased primarily by the wealthy or affluent. A luxury tax is generally set up as an excise tax on the purchase price of a good over an specific amount. For example, a 10% tax on the purchase price of an automobile over $30,000 would be considered a luxury tax. Goods most likely subject to luxury taxies are (expensive) cars, jewelry, boats, planes, and furs. A luxury tax is, by design, a progressive tax that falls more heavily on those with more income. Like almost every tax, a luxury tax is controversial and debated, favored by those not paying and opposed by those paying.

IMPORTS LINE

A graphical depiction of the relation between imports bought from the foreign sector and the domestic economy's aggregate level of income or production. This relation is most important for deriving the net exports line, which plays a minor, but growing role in the study of Keynesian economics. An imports line is characterized by vertical intercept, which indicates autonomous imports, and slope, which is the marginal propensity to import and indicates induced imports. The aggregate expenditures line used in Keynesian economics is derived by adding or stacking the net exports line, derived as the difference between the exports line and imports line, onto the consumption line, after adding investment expenditures and government purchases.
