SEC: The abbreviation for Securities and Exchange Commission, which is a federal government agency that regulates the trading of corporate stock to protect investors against unscrupulous practices. Like a number of other federal regulatory agencies, the SEC was established in the 1930s--1934 to be exact. The impetus for its formation was to prevent investors from manipulating the stock market and to prevent other practices that contributed to the 1929 stock market crash. The SEC has all sorts of rules governing the stock market, including information disclosure, insider trading, speculation, and use of credit.

TECHNOLOGY: The sum total of knowledge and information that society has acquired concerning the use of resources to produce goods and services. This technology often takes the form of scientific knowledge (the best combination of chemicals to make a long-lasting floor wax), but can also be plain old common sense (irrigate during a drought, not during a flood). Whether scientific or not, technology affects the technical efficiency with which resources are combined in production. An improvement in technology is thus an increase in the technical efficiency of production--more output with given inputs or fewer inputs for a given output. Technology is often embodied in capital goods. Bigger, better, faster, and less expensive computers are the result of advances in silicon chip technology. However, technology is also embodied in labor as human capital.

LONG-RUN INDUSTRY SUPPLY CURVE

The relation between market price and the quantity supplied by all firms in a perfectly competitive industry after the industry has completed its long-run adjustment. The long-run industry supply curve effectively traces out a series of equilibrium prices and quantities that reflect long-run adjustments of a perfectly competitive industry to demand shocks. This long-run adjustment can take one of three paths, indicating an increasing-cost industry, a decreasing-cost industry, and a constant-cost industry.

This isn't me! What am I?

There were no banks in colonial America before the U.S. Revolutionary War. Anyone seeking a loan did so from another individual.
