LIMITED PARTNERSHIP: A partnership in which one or more of the partners/owners has/have limited liability. This differs from regular partnerships in which each partner has unlimited liability. The limited partnership legal structure was created to provide liability protection to "partners" seeking investment opportunities, who did not want to participate in the actual management of the firm. While these limited partners are very much like corporation shareholders, the difference is that at least one partner must have unlimited liability.

INTERLOCKING DIRECTORATE: A common practice in the late 1800s and early 1900s in which the same group of people serve on the boards of directors of different companies in the same industry. The use of interlocking directorates was a means of monopolizing a market by giving control over competing firms to the same group of people. The use of interlocking directorates was specifically outlawed by the Clayton Act in 1914.

LIQUIDITY

The ease with which an asset can be converted to money with little or no loss of value. Money, currency and checkable deposits, is the benchmark for liquidity. Money is what other assets are converted to. Different assets have differing degrees of liquidity. Financial assets have differing degrees of liquidity but tend to be more liquid that physical assets. Liquidity is important to components of the three monetary aggregates tracked and reported by the Federal Reserve System--M1, M2, and M3.

"You have to find something that you love enough to be able to take risks, jump over the hurdles and break through the brick walls that are always going to be placed in front of you. If you don't have that kind of feeling for what it is you're doing, you'll stop at the first giant hurdle. "
