FIAT MONEY: A medium of exchange (money) with value in exchange, but little or no value in use. Modern paper currency, coins, and checkable deposits are fiat money. The value of fiat money comes from the public's general willingness to accept it in exchange for other goods. This willingness comes from the fact that EVERYONE is willing to accept fiat money in exchange, which largely depends on the public's confidence in the authority (usually government) issuing the fiat money. Fiat money is NOT valuable unto itself, but it is valuable for what it can buy.

PROGRESSIVE TAX

A tax in which the proportion of income paid in taxes is greater for higher income levels. A progressive income tax exists if taxpayers with more income pay a higher tax rate relative to income as income increases. A progressive tax is one of three alternations. The other two are proportional tax, in which the proportion of income paid in taxes is the same for all income levels, and regressive tax, in which the proportion of income paid in taxes is smaller for higher income levels.

Fortunately I have my handy OmniStraight shoestring straightener, a product developed by a team of former NASA scientists that's designed to straighten and untangle even the most convoluted shoestrings. OOPS! You might want to continue your pedestrian journey without me. It seems as though my handy OmniStraight shoestring straightener has inadvertently dissected my shoestring, mangled the upper half of my jogging shoe, and introduced several gashes to the top of my foot. As I faint face-first onto the sidewalk from the loss of blood, you can consider some of the ins and outs of my predicament.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time browsing about a thrift store seeking to buy either a genuine fake plastic Tiffany lamp or a microwave over that won't burn your popcorn. Be on the lookout for small children selling products door-to-door.
