AD VALOREM TARIFF: A tax on imports that is specified as a percentage of the value of the good or service being taxed. This is one form of trade barrier that's intended to restrict imports into a country. Unlike nontariff barriers and quotas, which increase prices and thus revenue received by domestic producers, an 'ad valorem tariff' generates revenue for the government. For example: a 15 percent ad valorem tariff on a TV set worth $100 would pay a tariff of $15. One advantage of an ad valorem tariff is that it keeps up with changes in prices (mostly inflation).

OTHER PRICES: A handy term referring to the prices of other goods that affect either the demand for a good or the supply of the good. On the demand side, other prices can be those for substitutes-in-consumption or complements-in-consumption. On the supply side, other prices can be those for either substitutes-in-production or complements-in-production. Changes in other prices cause shifts in the corresponding demand or supply curves.

FRACTIONAL-RESERVE BANKING

A method of banking activity in which banks keep less than 100 percent of their deposits in the form of bank reserves and use the rest for interest-paying loans. Fractional-reserve banking makes it possible for banks to function as profit-seeking financial intermediaries (matching up lenders and borrowers) while ensuring the safety and liquidity of deposits, especially checkable deposits that are part of the economy's money supply.

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time at a crowded estate auction wanting to buy either a how-to book on home decorating or a set of luggage with wheels. Be on the lookout for slow moving vehicles with darkened windows.
