UNDERGROUND ECONOMY: Illegal and unreported market transactions and productive activity that escape the watchful eyes of official record keepers. By most estimates, a substantial amount of productive activity takes place in the underground economy for the United States. Of course, these are only estimates because such activity, by definition, goes unreported. Were activity in the underground economy added to official activity in the "overground" economy, then gross domestic product could be boosted by as much as 25% to 50%, or more.

CAPITAL INVESTMENT: The acquisition of capital goods at the expense of consumption goods. This commonly goes by the shorter phrase "investment." Both mean essentially the same. The addition of capital merely serves to emphasize that the investment act is in fact resulting in the acquisition of capital goods.

CORPORATION

A business established through ownership shares (termed corporate stock) with limited liability of company debts by the owners. A corporation is considered a distinct legal person, separate from its owners. As such, the owners have limited liability. They are only liable for the value of the ownership share and cannot be held personally responsible for any corporate debts. A corporation is one of the three basic forms of business organization. The other two are proprietorship and partnership.
