DISTRIBUTION STANDARDS: Three alternative criteria for distributing income to members of society--contributive standard, equality standard, needs standard. A basic notion in economics is that income is generated through production (circular flow). The amount of income generated each year depends on the value of goods and services produced with the economy's limited resources. But once this income is generated it must be distributed to members of society. The contributive, equality, and needs standards are the three primary criteria for distributing income.

MINIMUM EFFICIENT SCALE: The quantity of production that places a firm at the lowest point on its long-run average cost curve. The minimum efficient scale is highly prized by economists because it achieves production of a good at the lowest possible opportunity cost. In other words, it's not possible to produced a good any cheaper than at the minimum efficient scale. At this quantity the production involves foregoing the least amount of other goods.
