INCREASING-COST INDUSTRY: A perfectly competitive industry with a positively-sloped long-run industry supply curve that results because expansion of the industry causes higher production cost and resource prices. For an increasing-cost industry the entry of new firms, prompted by an increase in demand, causes the long-run average supply curve of each firm to shift upward, which increases the minimum efficient scale of production.

UTILITY: The satisfaction of wants and needs obtained from the use or consumption of goods and services. The terms utility and satisfaction are, for the most part, used interchangeably in economics. Two other somewhat technical economic terms frequently used to capture this notion are welfare and well-being. Whichever term is used, the underlying concept is the same: To what extent are unlimited wants and needs fulfilled using the goods and services produced from society's limited resources.

EXPORTS

Goods and services produced by the domestic economy and purchased by the foreign sector. Exports are goods sold to other countries. Exports are the counter to imports--goods produced by the foreign sector and purchased by domestic economy. Exports, together with imports, are the essence of foreign trade--goods and services that are traded among the citizens of different nations. Exports and imports are frequently combined into a single term, net exports (exports minus imports).
