DUAL LABOR MARKET: A proposition that our economy has two classes of workers -- (1) adult white males and (2) other. The other includes, but isn't limited to, women, blacks, hispanics, and teenagers. Based on the political and economic clout of whites and the traditional notion of men as the "bread winners" of a family, white males constitute the primary labor supply and thus get the best, highest paying jobs, with the greatest chance of advancement--like executive, physician, shop foreman, or U. S. Senator. The other groups, however, are left with secondary jobs--such as secretary, janitor, nurse, or convenience store clerk--that have very low pay and limited prospects to move up. Moreover, there tends to be little movement between these two labor markets.

MACRO GOALS: The three goals of a mixed economy that are most relevant to the study of macroeconomics are full employment, stability, and economic growth. Full employment is the condition in which all of the economy's available resources are engaged in the production of goods and services. Stability is the condition in which the economy avoids large changes in production, employment, and especially prices. Economic growth is the condition in which the economy's production possibilities are expanding over time.

"Many people think that if they were only in some other place, or had some other job, they would be happy. Well, that is doubtful. So get as much happiness out of what you are doing as you can and don't put off being happy until some future date. "
