PLANT: The physical capital (building and equipment) at a particular location used for the production of goods and services. While the term plant is occasional used synonymously with the terms firm or business, when economists get down to specifics, which they are prone to do, the term plant is used ONLY for a specific production facility. As such, it best used synonymously with the term factory.

PLASTIC MONEY

A slang phrase for credit cards, especially when such cards used to make purchases. The "plastic" portion of this term refers to the plastic construction of credit cards, as opposed to paper and metal of currency. The "money" portion is an erroneous reference to credit cards as a form of money, which they are not. Although credit cards do facilitate transactions, because they are a liability rather than an asset, they are not money and not part of the economy's money supply.
