TIME PERIOD: One of three elasticity determinants (budget proportion and substitute availability are the other two) stating that the elasticity of a good tends to be greater for a longer time period of analysis. In other words, the price elasticity of demand for gasoline is greater when the time period is one year than when it is one month. This elasticity determinant works for both the price elasticity of demand and the price elasticity of supply. In both cases, longer time periods allow consumers and produces more time to adjust to any price changes.

PUBLIC GOOD: A good that's difficult to keep nonpayers from consuming (excludability), and use of the good by one person doesn't prevent use by others (rival consumption). Examples include national defense, a clean environment, and any fourth of July fireworks display. Public goods are invariably provided by government because there's no way a private business can profitably produce them. Private businesses can't sell public goods in markets, because they can't charge a price and keep nonpaying people away. Moreover, businesses shouldn't charge a price, because there's no opportunity cost for extra consumers. For efficiency, government needs to pay for public goods through taxes.

CAPITAL CONSUMPTION ADJUSTMENT

The official item in the National Income and Product Accounts maintained by the Bureau of Economics Analysis that measures the macroeconomy's capital depreciation during a given time period, usually one year. The capital consumption adjustment (CCA), which is also commonly termed the capital consumption allowance (also conveniently abbreviated CCA), is subtracted from gross domestic product (GDP) to calculate net domestic product (NDP). The CCA is also subtracted from gross private domestic investment to calculate net private domestic investment.
