TANSTAAFL: A rather cumbersome and usually hard to remember acronym for the expression "There ain't no such thing as a free lunch. This is a favorite saving of many economists because it highlights, albeit in a grammatically questionable manner, the fundamental problem of scarcity. The phrase serves to emphasize that seemingly "free" lunches are not really free. While they might be free to the customer, someone must pay, that is, incur an opportunity cost of foregone production. The lunch eaten by one person cannot be eaten by another.

MARKET ADJUSTMENT: The economic analysis of the changes in market equilibrium caused by changes in the demand determinants and supply determinants. Given the two curves that comprise the market--the demand curve and the supply curve; each of which can increase or decrease; market adjustment comes in eight varieties. Four involve a shift of EITHER the demand curve OR the supply curve. The other four involve a shift of BOTH the demand curve AND the supply curve.

FOREIGN EXCHANGE

A common term for the currency used in "another country" and is in direct contrast to the "domestic currency" used within a given country. More generally, foreign exchange is any financial instrument that gives one country a claim on the currency of another country and which is used to make payments between countries. The most important type of foreign exchange is, of course, the currency of other countries. However foreign exchange also includes financial assents such as bank deposits denominated in another currency. Foreign exchange is appropriately traded through the foreign exchange market and the price of foreign currency is termed the foreign exchange rate.
