COMPARABLE WORTH: The notion that different jobs requiring comparable, but not identical, skills should be paid the same wage. The logic behind comparable worth is that centuries (perhaps even millennia) of discrimination against women by men have relegated women to second-class, poorly paid jobs with little or no chance for advancement. Men, in contrast, with the same education, skills, and abilities are able to get the better, higher paying jobs. Comparable worth would be a program in which different jobs are evaluated and scored, based on the skills, responsibilities, and education needed. Jobs with the same scores would then be required to have the same pay.

HOT MONEY: Financial capital that quickly moves from one financial asset to another in search of or with expectations of higher interest rates and return. Hot money can move from one bank to another or from one country to another. For banks, hot money usually refers to deposits that exceed FDIC insured limits that bounce around from bank to bank as interest rates change. For countries, hot money refers to financial capital that quickly leaves one country due to exchange rates, interest rate differentials, or economic turmoil, or the threat of war.

CAPITAL DEPRECIATION

The wearing out, breaking down, or technological obsolescence of physical capital that results from use in the production of goods and services. To paraphrase an old saying, "You can't make a car without breaking a few socket wrenches." In other words, when capital is used over and over again to produce goods and services, it wears down from such use.
