Microeconomics

posted by .

I'm just confused about this one concept. My lecture notes say the following:

Markets for goods + services:
- firms sell
- households buy

Markets for Factors of Production:
- Households sell
- Firms buy

I don't understand the "factors of production". What does that even mean? Thanks
