 Public good - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The economic concept of public goods should not be confused with the expression "the public good", which is usually an application of a collective ethical notion of "the good" in political decision-making.
Common goods should not be confused with another subtype of public goods: the collective goods (also known as social goods), which are defined as goods that could be delivered as private goods, but are delivered instead by the government for various reasons (usually social policy).
Most believers in public goods theory hold that provision of public goods should be a task for the state and that the state should therefore have the powers to tax and regulate, since such powers are necessary for the provision of public goods.

 Superior good - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Superior goods make up a larger proportion of consumption as income rises, and as such are a type of normal goods in consumer theory.
The choice of the word "Superior" to define goods of this type suggests that they are the antonym of "Inferior goods", but this is misleading; An inferior good can never be a superior good, but many goods are neither.
A superior good might be a luxury which isn't purchased at all below a certain level of income, or have a wide quality distribution, such as wine, and holidays (where the number produced may stay constant with rising wealth, but the level of spending goes up, to secure a better experience.)

 Good Omens - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (1990) is a fantasy novel written in collaboration between Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.
The Dutch translation of Good Omens contains an ironic preface by the translator wherein he asserts that no extra footnotes were added to clarify matters that might be unclear to a modern audience — annotated with footnotes explaining omen and Crowley.
The book is a comedy and a somewhat parody of the 1976 film The Omen, concerning the birth of the son of Satan, the coming of the End Times and the attempts of the angel Aziraphale and the demon Crowley to avert them, having become accustomed to their comfortable postings in the human world.

 Good faith - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Good faith, or in Latin bona fides, is the mental and moral state of honesty, conviction as to the truth or falsehood of a proposition or body of opinion, or as to the rectitude or depravity of a line of conduct, even if the conviction is objectively unfounded.
One who acts in good faith, so far as the violation of positive law (or even in certain junctures of natural law) is concerned, is said to labor under an invincible error, and hence to be guiltless.
In fact, good faith has been identified as the key essence of a contract, and the parties are expected to act in good faith in their dealings.

 Luxury good - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Luxury goods are said to have high income elasticity of demand: as people become more wealthy, they will buy more and more of the luxury good.

 Matthew Good - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Good noted that he was concerned his previous line-up had run its course creatively, and that, as a solo artist, he was graced with the freedom to change direction by involving different musicians.
Good later noted that he loved the freedom of being able to write a song, enter the studio, and have a recording completed almost immediately, rather than having to deal with the sometimes arduous process of recording layers and layers of music for a single song.
Good's political outspokenness and brash confidence were unusual in the Canadian rock scene of the 1990s, and he was soon recognized as much for his seemingly difficult disposition as for his musical talent.

 Good Vibrations - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The recording and production style used on the "Good Vibrations" single established Wilson's new method of operation: the recording and re-recording of specific sections of music, followed by rough mixes of the sections edited together, further recording as required, and the construction of the final mix from the component elements.
Beach Boys leader, composer, and producer Brian Wilson described "Good Vibrations" as a "pocket symphony," and the composition is indeed symphonic in structure, with multiple movements and layered instrumentation.
The genesis of the phrase/title "Good Vibrations" has been recounted by Wilson on numerous occasions, including his 1995 biopic, I Just Wasn't Made for These Times.

 Substitute good - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In economics, one kind of good (or service) is said to be a substitute good for another kind insofar as the two kinds of goods can be consumed or used in place of one another in at least some of their possible uses.
One good is a perfect substitute for another only if it can be used in exactly the same way, at exactly the same cost, and with exactly the same quality of outcome; that is, when there is no particular incentive for a customer to prefer one over the other.
The fact that one good is substitutable for another has immediate economic consequences: insofar as one good can be substituted for another, the demand for the two kinds of good will be bound together by the fact that customers can trade off one good for the other if it becomes advantageous to do so.

 MSN Encarta - International Trade
“Goods” can be defined as finished products, as intermediate goods used in producing other goods, or as raw materials such as minerals, agricultural products, and other such commodities.
According to Smith’s theory, a country that trades internationally should specialize in producing only those goods in which it has an absolute advantage, that is, those goods it can produce more cheaply than can its trading partners.
If each country specializes in producing the goods in which it has a comparative advantage, more goods are produced, and the wealth of both the buying and the selling nations increases.
