FEDERAL SAVINGS AND LOAN INSURANCE CORPORATION: Abbreviated FSLIC, this was once the federal entity responsible for insuring the deposits at savings and loan associations (S&Ls). It performed the same function for S&Ls that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) performed for traditional banks. However, when a significant number S&Ls experienced problems in the 1980s and effectively bankrupting the FSLIC, the FDIC assumed the deposit insurance role for any remaining S&Ls, too.

ECONOMY: The system of production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services that a society uses to address the problem of scarcity. The essential task of an economy is to transform resources into useful goods and services (the act of production), then distribute or allocate these products to useful ends (the act of consumption). Virtually all economies accomplish this task through a combination of decisions made through voluntary market exchanges and involuntary government rules and regulations.
