OPEN MARKET OPERATIONS: The Federal Reserve System's buying and selling of government securities in an effort to alter bank reserves and subsequently the nation's money supply. These actions, under the direction of the Federal Open Market Committee, are the Fed's number one, most effective, most often used tool of monetary policy. If, for example, the Fed wants to increase the money supply (termed easy money) it buy's government securities. If the Fed chooses to reduce the money supply (called tight money) it sells some government securities.

The AmosWEB Free Lunch Index is designed to track the state of the economy based on the neverending pursuit of a "free lunch." While there is, of course, no such thing as a "free lunch," what with limited resources and unlimited wants and needs, that doesn't keep us from trying. A higher Free Lunch Index means a better economy. The Free Lunch Index can range from 0 to 800.

Help us compile the Free Lunch Index by providing your lunching activities each day. You have a choice from among nine alternatives:

  • Skipped lunch altogether.
  • Bought by another.
  • Ate lunch at home.
  • Brought lunch from home.
  • Fast food drive through.
  • Fast food dine in.
  • All-you-can eat buffet.
  • Casual dining with tip.
  • Fancy upscale with tip.
Your choice will be combined with other AmosWEB patrons to compile the index. Submit your choice daily. Check back often.
CIRCULAR FLOW

A model of the continuous movement of production, income, and the services of scarce resources that flow between producers and consumers. In particular, the circular flow is a model of the continuous production and consumption interaction among the four major sectors of the macroeconomy--household, business, government, and foreign--using the three macroeconomic markets--product, resource, and financial. The circular flow model provides a easy way of getting the "big picture" and of seeing how the key parts of the macroeconomy fit together.

My Sales Pitch On ADVERTISING

Our extended sojourn through the winding complexities of the economy has worn the soles from my jogging shoes. For the best bargain on a new pair, let's consult those annoying flyers stuffed into the Sunday newspaper. We're in luck. The Mega-Mart Discount Warehouse Super Center is having their monthly "once in a lifetime" sale on jogging shoes. Without this Mega-Mart Discount Warehouse Super Center advertising supplement, I might have unknowingly paid a higher price for my brand new Fleet Feet Footwear jogging shoes. Isn't advertising wonderful?

WHITE GULLIBON
[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time lost in your local discount super center wanting to buy either a flower arrangement for your aunt or a birthday greeting card for your uncle. Be on the lookout for florescent light bulbs that hum folk songs from the sixties.

This isn't me! What am I?
