WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION: An international organization that oversees multilateral trade among nations. The World Trade Organization, or WTO, was established in 1995 by the Uruguay round of trade negotiations to replace the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) that had been in place for the preceding five decades. The WTO administers multilateral trade agreements, provides a forum for trade negotiations, handles trade disputes, monitors national trade policies, and provides technical assistance and training for developing countries. The WTO has about 150 member countries.

DISECONOMIES OF SCALE: Increasing long-run average cost that occurs as a firm increases all inputs and expands its scale of production. This is graphically illustrated by a positively-sloped long-run average cost curve and typically occurs for relatively large levels of production. Diseconomies of scale overwhelm by economies of scale for relatively large production levels. Together, economies of scale and diseconomies of scale cause the long-run average cost curve to be U-shaped.

Your Complete Scope

This isn't me! What am I?

The word "fiscal" is derived from a Latin word meaning "moneybag."
"You have to find something that you love enough to be able to take risks, jump over the hurdles and break through the brick walls that are always going to be placed in front of you. If you don't have that kind of feeling for what it is you're doing, you'll stop at the first giant hurdle. "
