Substitution swapSubstitution swap
A swap in which a money manager exchanges one bond for another bond that is similar in terms of coupon, maturity, and credit quality, but that offers a higher yield.
Import substitutionImport substitution
A strategy for economic development that replaces imports with domestic production. It may be motivated by the infant industry argument, or simply by the desire to mimic the industrial structure of advanced countries. Contrasts with export promotion.
Elasticity of substitutionElasticity of substitution
The elasticity of the ratio of two inputs to a production (or utility) function with respect to the ratio of their marginal products (or utilities). With competitive demands, this is also the elasticity with respect to their price ratio. For example, with factors L,K and factor prices w,r, the elasticity of substitution of a production function F(K,L) is s = (wL/rK)d(K/L)/d(w/r).
Substitution effectSubstitution effect
That portion of the effect of price on quantity demanded that reflects the changed tradeoff between the good and other alternatives. Contrasts with income effect.
