FOREIGN EXCHANGE: Any financial instrument that gives one country a claim on the currency of another country and which is used to make payments between countries. The most important type of foreign exchange is currency itself, that is, the currency of other countries. However foreign exchange also includes things like bank checks and "bills of exchange" (a sort of contract that's paid for with the currency of one nation that can be then traded for the currency of another country).

RED AGGRESSERINE
Your compete MICRO*scope for today

You are the type of person who will always, repeat ALWAYS, get the most for the least. Family and friends take you along when looking to negotiate the purchase of cars and houses. Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time strolling around a discount warehouse buying club seeking to buy either an AC adapter for your CD player or storage boxes for your family photos. Be on the lookout for slightly overweight pizza delivery guys. You should consider shopping at stores or businesses beginning with the letter F, but do not buy any products with a serial number or product code containing the number 892948. Your preferred shopping venue is auctions. Your special symbol is the ampersand (&).


Is this You?

As a Red Aggresserine, you are somewhat audacious and quite assertive, extremely competitive and a bit vindictive. You take no prisoners when it comes to market negotiations. For you, the thrill is in the competition. You enjoy the challenge of getting the most for the least and will do all you can to come out on top. You live for the hunt, the chase, the transaction. Your adrenaline is triggered by the thoughts of economic victory.


This isn't me! What am I?
AUTONOMOUS INVESTMENT

Business investment expenditures that do not depend on income or production (especially national income or even gross domestic product). That is, changes in income do not generate changes in investment. Autonomous investment is best thought of as investment that the business sector undertakes regardless of the state of the economy. It is measured by the intercept term of the investment line. The alternative to autonomous investment is induced investment, which does depend on income.

The Odds On GAMBLING

I'm sure there's a great philosopher somewhere who once uttered the words, "Life's a contradiction and we're all a bunch of hypocrites." Take me for example. Just this morning I walked by Smilin' Ted's All-Comers Insurance Agency to drop off my annual shoe insurance premium (for protection against blowouts), then made a pit stop at Master Sprocket's convenience store where I plopped down five dollars on five (count 'em, five) Super Luck-O Multi-State Lottery tickets. Within a space of two blocks and twenty minutes I bought $37.56 worth of shoe insurance to avoid risk and then spent another $5 to take on some risk. Am I a walking contradiction, or what?
