COIN: A shiny metal disc, almost always authorized by a national government entity, with a raised impression of famous dead people on one side and a building or birds on the other that is used as money. U.S. coins are issued by the U.S. Treasury Department and come in denominations of pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, half-dollars, and dollars. At one time, metal coins were comprised of valuable metal (that is, commodity money) in an amount equivalent to their face value. A dime had 10-cents worth of silver. A nickel had 5-cents worth of nickel. A penney had 1-cents worth of copper. Most modern coins, however, are fiat money, containing less valuable metal alloys. But they work just fine in vending machines.

PRODUCTION: The process of transforming the natural resources of the land into consumer satisfying consumption and capital goods using scarce resources. In a world of scarcity, with unlimited wants and needs and limited resources, living standards are enhanced by transforming the planet's raw materials, that don't provide much satisfaction in their natural state, into goods, that provide more satisfaction.

NOVEL INFORMATION

Information received by the five senses (sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell) that is new, different, and unusual. Because novel information has the potential to be threatening it triggers an automatic response through what is commonly termed the "fight or flight" reaction. Novel information is evaluated in contrast to redundant information, which is familiar and presumably nonthreatening.
