YELLOW-DOG CONTRACT: An agreement signed by workers before they are hired, stipulating that they would not join a union after they are hired. This contract was commonly used by firms in the late 1800s and early 1900s to limit labor union membership and thus to prevent unions from exerting control over the labor market. Yellow-dog contracts were outlawed by the Norris-LaGuardia Act in 1932.

SAVING FUNCTION: The positive relation between household saving and household disposable income. The saving function is commonly presented as the saving line or propensity-to-saving line. The slope of this line is the marginal propensity to save, which is the proportion of any additional income used for saving. The saving function and the marginal propensity to saving play key roles in the multiplier and accelerator concepts. Because consumption is the difference between disposable income and saving, the consumption function is a complementary relation to the saving function.

MARKET STRUCTURES

The manner in which markets or industries are organized, based largely on the number of participants in the market or industry and the extent of market control of each participant. Perfect competition represents the benchmark market structure that contains a large number of participants on both sides of the market, and no market control by any firm. Three market structure models with varying degrees of market control on the supply side of the market are: monopoly, monopolistic competition, and oligopoly. Three lesser known market structures with varying degrees of market control on the demand side of the market are: monopsony, oligopsony, and monopsonistic competition.
