S&P 500: The abbreviation for the Standard & Poor's 500, an index of the prices of 500 corporate stocks traded on the New York Stock Exchange. It includes an assortment of stocks for industrial, transportation, and utility companies. It also includes a larger number of stocks than the comparable Dow Jones composite index, which means it's often considered a better measure of the overall performance of the stock market. Less commonly publicized are separate Standard & Poor's indexes for industrial, transportation, utility, and financial stocks.

DISINFLATION: A decline in the inflation rate. With disinflation, prices are still rising, they're just not rising as fast. Numerically speaking, if the inflation rate was 10% last year, 6% this year, and looks to be 4% next year, then we have disinflation. Disinflation, a reduction in the inflation rate, is not the same as deflation, a decline in the price level. Prices continue to rise with disinflation, just not as fast. Should disinflation continue, presumably because anti-inflationary monetary or fiscal policies are working effectively, then the average price level could decline and we make the transition to deflation.

     See also | inflation | inflation rate | deflation | price level | stabilization policies |
