UNFAVORABLE BALANCE OF TRADE: An imbalance in a nation's balance of trade in which the payments for merchandise imports made by the country exceed payments for merchandise exports received by the country. This is also termed a balance of trade deficit. It's considered unfavorable because more goods are imported into the country than are exported out, meaning that domestic production is replaced with foriegn production, which then reduces domestic employment and income. A balance of trade deficit is often the source of a balance of payments deficit.

REGRESSIVE TAX: A tax in which people with more income pay a smaller percentage in taxes. A regressive tax is given by this example--You earn $10,000 a year and your boss gets $20,000. You pay $2,000 in taxes (20 percent) while your boss also pays $2,000 in taxes (10 percent). Examples of regressive taxes abound (is this surprising given the political clout of the wealthy?), including sales tax, excise tax, and Social Security tax.

EQUITY

This has two, not totally unrelated, uses in economics--one of five economic goals and ownership of an asset. As an economic goal, one of the two microeconomic goals, achieving equity means that income and wealth are distributed in a fair manner. What is meant by "fair" is subject to continuing debate. As ownership, equity typically refers to the ownership of a corporation, especially corporate stock. An equity market, as such, is another term for a stock market that trades ownership stock of corporations.
