DISTRIBUTED CORPORATE PROFITS: More commonly termed dividends, this is the portion of a corporation's after-tax accounting profit that's paid to shareholders or owners. Corporate managers usually try to pay the shareholders some minimum dividend that's comparable to returns from other financial markets--such as the interest on government securities or corporate bonds--to keep the owners from selling off the company's stock. That portion of after-tax accounting profit that's not paid out as dividends is typically invested in capital.

POVERTY LINE: The official measure of the income needed by a family based on family size, location, and characteristics of the head of the household. The official U.S. poverty line is based on more of a relative poverty level rather than an absolute poverty level. For example, a family of two living in a rural area would need a different amount of money to stay above the official poverty line that would a family of four living in a city.

An increase in physical wealth causes a decrease (downward shift) of the aggregate expenditures line. Other notable aggregate expenditures determinants include consumer confidence, federal deficit, inflationary expectations, and exchange rates.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time searching for rummage sales hoping to buy either a flower arrangement with daisies and carnations for your uncle or a coffee cup commemorating next Thursday. Be on the lookout for jovial bank tellers.

This isn't me! What am I?
