FDI: The abbreviation for Foreign Direct Investment, this is the acquisition of controlling interest in foreign firms and businesses from one country in another country. FDI can also take the form of constructing factories, structures and equipment (or any form of physical capital) in foreign soil. FDI does not include foreign investment into the stock markets (portfolio investment). Most economists consider foreign direct investment more useful than portfolio investment since this last one is generally regarded as temporal and can leave the foreign country at the first sign of trouble. FDI on the other hand, is considered more durable and with larger economic (potential) benefits.

PRIVATE GOOD: A good that's easy to keep nonpayers from consuming (called excludability), and use of the good by one person prevents use by others (termed rival consumption). Examples include almost anything that you can buy at a grocery store or shopping mall. The reason for this is that private goods are privately owned and can be sold to others for a price. For efficiency, its best for these goods to be traded through markets without any direct government involvement (unless they have a market failure). See common-property good, near-public good, public good.

INVESTMENT BUSINESS CYCLES

The notion that business cycles are caused by changes in business sector investment expenditures triggered by the natural ebb and flow of market conditions. This investment explanation of business-cycle instability rests on the proposition that the seeds of each subsequent business-cycle phase are planted during the current phase. An expansion creates the conditions that cause a contraction and a contraction creates the conditions that cause an expansion. This explanation suggests a critical role for government intervention and stabilization policies to correct the business-cycle problems of inflation and unemployment.
