IMPLICIT LOGROLLING: A type of voter logrolling in which two separate programs or policies are combined into a single package, which is then subject to a single vote. With implicit logrolling, each voter is "on record" only for the entire package and thus can contend that a vote was cast only for "their" favored program. Implicit logrolling is commonly used by legislators to trade votes without appearing to trade votes. Legislators can come out in support of "their" programs, while simultaneously being against "other" programs, even though they actually voted for the "other" programs by voting for "their" programs, but they didn't really want to vote for the "other" programs and only voted for the "other" programs to ensure passage of "their" programs. An alternative type of logrolling is explicit logrolling.

JOINT VENTURE: An activity undertaken by two or more entities in which each entity has some degree of control. Joint ventures are commonly undertaken by two or more business firms, allowing each firm to participate in the benefits of the venture without the loss of control that would come from a formal merger of the firms. For example, a bank and a computer company might undertake a joint venture to develop a computerized, online payment system. Joint ventures are usually risky activities and often related to the development of new technology.

UNEMPLOYMENT RATE, MEASUREMENT PROBLEMS

The official unemployment rate, which measures the proportion of the civilian labor force 16 years or older that is not engaged in productive activities but is actively seeking employment, might be either overstated or understated due to discouraged workers, part-time workers, and unreported legal or illegal employment. Taken together, these measurement problems suggest that the official unemployment rate is likely understated during business-cycle contraction and overstated during business-cycle expansions.
