    a luxury good

    I understood that "a luxury good" is grammatically wrong when you refer to merchandize or product items. But I came across the following examples in the papers:
    1. Housing is a luxury good.
    2. Airtravel has become a luxury good.
    3. Fish will become a luxury good.

    Please enlighten me on these.

    Why do you say "a luxury good" is grammatically wrong?
    In economics, a 'good' is a common term.
