autonomous consumption
That portion of consumption that is autonomous. For example, if the consumption function has the form C=C0+cY, where C0 and c are parameters and Y is income, then C0 may be called autonomous consumption. An increase in autonomous consumption then represents an upward shift in the consumption function.
