In Keynesian macroeconomic models, the ratio of the change in an endogenous variable to the change in an exogenous variable. Usually means the multiplier for government spending on income. In the simplest Keynesian model of a closed economy, this is 1/, where is the marginal propensity to save. See open economy multiplier.

A Multiplier is a numerical coefficient which relates the change of a component of aggregate demand (such as the export demand for a region's products) to a consequent change in income [or employment] (in this case: regional income or [employment]). In the case of the regional employment multiplier we relate the change of employment in the region's export sectors to the consequent changes in employment in those ("non-basic") sectors which are facing a change in household demand as a (direct and indirect) result of changes in employment and income in the export sectors.

Is a factor which can increase the leverage of an instrument such as a floater or inverse floater. While sometimes the multiplier is less than 1.0, it is usually greater than 1.0. Multipliers are often seen in structured financings such as CMOs and Over-the-Counter derivatives.

This refers to a mechanism within the meter. Sometimes when a location has a high amount of usage, the meterĂ¢â‚¬(tm)s dials/numbers are required to turn numerous times. To prevent this, the mechanism slows down the meter. To calculate actual usage, the kWh registered on this meter are multiplied by a number (also called the multiplier) to determine the true usage.

Often referred to as Meter Constant. See Constant.
