FISCAL: Relating to government taxation, spending, or financial matters. The term is most often using in combination with other words, such as fiscal budget, fiscal year, or fiscal policy. In each case, the addition of the term "fiscal" means a connection with government financial matters. Fiscal policy, for example, is policy that makes use of government spending and taxation. Fiscal year is then the standard 12-month period government uses for collecting taxes, appropriating spending, and otherwise tabulating its budget.

EXHAUSTIBLE RESOURCE: A natural resource that cannot be increased by the natural forces of the environment. The quantities of exhaustible resources are effectively fixed and thus the more used today, the less is available for use in the future. It is possible, and even expected, that exhaustible resources will be exhausted at some time in the future. Common examples of exhaustible resources are the three fossil fuels -- petroleum, coal, and natural gas. The vast array of mineral resources -- iron, silver, gold, and copper -- represent other examples.

COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY

An agency of the U.S. Federal government responsible for chartering national banks. In other words, anyone wanting to establish a bank with the word "national" in the title must gain permission from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC). The Comptroller is also responsible for regulating banks and might even assume control of a bank that is in serious trouble (that is, on the verge of failure). Although the term "currency" appears in the title, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency is primarily a bank regulator and has almost nothing to do with the nation's "currency." The OCC was established in 1863 as a bureau of the U.S. Department of the Treasury and is located in Washington, D.C.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time watching the shopping channel looking to buy either a combination CD player, clock radio, and telephone (with answering machine) or a revolving spice rack. Be on the lookout for florescent light bulbs that hum folk songs from the sixties.

This isn't me! What am I?

The Dow Jones family of stock market price indexes began with a simple average of 11 stock prices in 1884.
"Many people think that if they were only in some other place, or had some other job, they would be happy. Well, that is doubtful. So get as much happiness out of what you are doing as you can and don't put off being happy until some future date. "
