GOVERNMENT PURCHASES OF GOODS AND SERVICES: Expenditures on final goods and services (that is, gross domestic product) undertaken by the government sector. The official entry for government purchases in the National Income and Product Accounts maintained by the Bureau of Economic Analysis is termed government consumption expenditures and gross investment. Government purchases are used to operate the government (administrative salaries, etc.) and to provide public goods (national defense, highways, etc.). Government purchases do not include other government spending for transfer payments. These are expenditures on final goods by all three levels of government: federal, state, and local governments.

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF SECURITIES DEALERS: A stock market in which corporate stocks are exchanged by dealers across the country using a computerized system of stock price quotes. This is often referred to as the "over-the-counter" stock market, because, unlike the New York Stock Exchange, the American Stock Exchange, and others, the dealers don't conduct their business at a single location. They match up their buy and sell orders through a computer network rather than through the face-to-face contact. Transactions conducted by the NASD give rise to one of the more commonly publicized stock market price indicators, the NASDAQ (which stands for National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotation). The widely used NASDAQ composite index is based on the prices of 5,000 of these over-the-counter stocks.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time looking for the new strip mall out on the highway wanting to buy either a birthday gift for your father that doesn't look like every other birthday gift for your father or a green fountain pen. Be on the lookout for door-to-door salesmen.
