SHORT-RUN SUPPLY CURVE, MONOPOLISTIC COMPETITION: Market control by a monopolistically competitive firm means that it does not have a supply relation between the quantity of output produced and the price. By way of comparison a perfectly competitive firm DOES have a short-run supply curve. The small amount of market control by a monopolistically competitive firm means that its' price is NOT equal to marginal revenue, and thus it does NOT equate marginal cost and price. As such, a monopolistically competitive firm does not move along it's marginal cost curve. A monopolistic competition does not necessarily supply larger quantities at higher prices or smaller quantities at lower prices.

PHYSICAL SCIENCE: The scientific study of nonhuman, nonsociety phenomenon, such as atoms, planets, wildlife, and continental drift. Common disciplines that study these physical phenomenon go by the names physics, chemistry, biology, geology, and astronomy, among others. The primary reason for this entry is to provide a contrast with social sciences, especially economics, that study human behavior and society.

AUTONOMOUS SAVING

Household saving that does not depend on income or production (especially disposable income, national income, or even gross domestic product). That is, changes in income do not generate changes in saving. Autonomous saving is best thought of as a baseline level of saving (usually negative) that the household sector undertakes in the unlikely event that income falls to zero. It is measured by the intercept term of the saving function or the saving line. The alternative to autonomous saving is induced saving, which does depend on income.
