CIO: The abbreviation for the Congress of Industrial Organizations, which was originally a collection of industrial unions established due to a rift among AFL members in 1938, this is now one half of the umbrella organization for labor unions in the United States (the CIO part of AFL-CIO). Industrial unions included in the CIO, were originally part of the AFL. However, because the AFL primarily represented skilled workers in craft unions, a rift among AFL members developed in 1938, resulting in the creation of the CIO. This rift was closed in 1955, when both joined together to form the AFL-CIO, which is the primary advocate for workers and labor unions in the United States.

HOARDING: The act of accumulating assets, especially goods or money, over and above that needed for immediate use based on the fear or expectation of future shortages and higher prices. For example, concerns about a worldwide shortage of sugar and chocolate might prompt a consumer to purchase several hundred boxes of candy, which are stored in a wine cellar. Alternatively, someone fearing a global collapse of the financial system might be inclined to pack pillow cases with bundles of cash or stockpile gold bullion in the closet. Such hoarding, if widely practiced, can actually contribute to the anticipated shortage and higher prices.
