QUASI-PUBLIC CORPORATION: A business activity that is privately controlled, but authorized by government legislation. The Federal National Mortgage Association is one example. Quasi-public corporations are set up when governments expand their activities and/or divest themselves of current government functions. Quasi-public corporations often result because governments seek to promote a particular activity, such as student loans, low cost home mortgages, or lotteries, but do not want the administrative burden.

FULL-RESERVE BANKING: A (hypothetical) method of banking in which banks keep 100 percent of their deposits in the form of bank reserves, meaning there are no deposits available for interest-paying loans. Full-reserve banking is one of two theoretical alternatives designed to help illustrate a contrast to the fractional-reserve banking actually practiced by modern banks. The other alternative is no-reserve banking. With full-reserve a bank essentially operates as a storage business, merely storing customer deposits until they are withdrawn.

ADVERSE SELECTION

An inefficient, bad, or adverse outcome of a market exchange that results because buyers and/or sellers make decisions based on asymmetric information. This commonly results in a market that exchanges a lesser quality good, what is termed the market for lemons. Two related problems resulting from asymmetric information are moral hazard and the principal-agent problem. Two methods of lessoning the problem of adverse selection are signalling and screening.

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time searching for a specialty store wanting to buy either a remote controlled sports car with an air spoiler or semi-gloss photo paper that works with your neighbor's printer. Be on the lookout for spoiled cheese hiding under your bed hatching conspiracies against humanity.
