AMEX: The common abbreviation for the American Stock Exchange, which is one of three national stock markets in the United States (see National Association of Securities Dealers and New York Stock Exchange) that trade ownership shares in corporations. In terms of daily stock transactions and the number of stocks listed, the American Stock Exchange is the smallest of these three. However, it's composite index of stock prices -- AMEX is considered important enough to be flashed briefly on the nightly news.

INSIDE LAG: In the context of economic policies, the time between a shock to the economy and corrective government action responding to the shock. This is one of two primary lags in the use of economic policies. The other is outside lag, the time between the government action and the affect on the economy. The inside lag can be divided into the recognition lag and the implementation lag. The recognition lag is identifying the shock or need for action and the implementation is determining the appropriate policy response. Monetary policy tends to have a shorter outside lag than fiscal policy. The length of the inside and outside lags is one argument against the use of discretionary policies to stabilize business cycles.

CONTRACTIONARY MONETARY POLICY

A form of monetary policy in which a decrease in the money supply and a increase in interest rates are used to correct the inflationary problems of a business-cycle expansion. In theory, contractionary monetary policy can include selling U.S. Treasury securities through open market operations, an increase in the discount rate, and an increase in reserve requirements. In theory, open market operations are the primary tool of contractionary monetary policy. Contractionary monetary policy is often supported by contractionary fiscal policy. An alternative is expansionary monetary policy.

The wealthy industrialist, Andrew Carnegie, was once removed from a London tram because he lacked the money needed for the fare.
"If I'm selecting a group, the first thing I look for is a record of achievement . . . If (candidates achieve) in small things, there's a very good chance they'll perform well in big things. "
