COMMONWEALTH VERSUS HUNT: A notable court case, decided by the Massachusetts Supreme Court in 1842, that declared labor unions were not illegal, which had been the existing interpretation of the law up to that time. This court case paved the way for the U.S. labor union movement, which continued in force for the next 100 years. While this case established the legality of a labor union, union activities (such as strikes) were not necessarily legal. This was much like making it legal to own a gun, but not legal to shot someone.

MONEY FUNCTIONS: Any item used as money in an economy performs automatically takes on four basic functions: (1) medium of exchange, (2) measure of value, (3) store of value, and (4) standard of deferred payment. While "buying and selling" means that money is THE medium of exchange, by far THE most important function of money, money also performs measure of value, store of value, and standard of deferred payment functions. Measure of value, also termed unit of account, means that prices are stated in terms of money. Store of value means that value, the satisfaction of wants and needs, can be stored over time using money. Standard of deferred payment means that future payments, such as paying off a car loan, are also in terms of the monetary unit.

LONG-RUN TOTAL COST

The opportunity cost incurred by all of the factors of production used in the long run (when all inputs are variable) by a firm to produce a good or service, including wages paid to labor, rent paid for the land, interest paid to capital owners, and a normal profit earned by entrepreneurs. Unlike short-run total cost, long-run total cost cannot be separated into fixed cost and variable cost. In the long run, all inputs are variable, so all cost is variable.
