SPATIAL: A modifying term used to indicate a connection or relation to space, and by inference the study of urban and regional economics, as suggested by the term spatial differentiation (which means differences in the concentration of economic activity across space). This term is commonly used to make people some exceedingly intelligent by asking questions like "Did you consider spatial factors in your analysis?" However, in so doing be careful that the word is pronounced "spatial", not "special." This just confuses the situation.

BANK BALANCE SHEET: A record of the assets, liabilities, and net worth of a bank at a given point in time. Assets are what a bank owns. Liabilities are what a bank owes. Net worth is the difference between the two and what is claimed by or owed to the owners of the bank. By definition, a balance sheet must balance. The assets on one side are equal to the liabilities and net worth on the other.

RESERVE REQUIREMENTS

Rules established and enforced by the Federal Reserve System governing the amount of reserves (vault cash and Federal Reserve deposits) that banks must keep to back up their deposits. Reserve requirements help to maintain a stable banking system and ensure that banks are able to conduct day-to-day check-clearing and cash-withdrawal transactions. These requirements are also one of the three monetary policy tools that the Fed can use, in principle, to control the money supply. The other two are open market operations and the discount rate.
