LOAN LOSS RESERVES: A special account set aside by banks acting as a buffer between deposits and net worth that's used in case a loan is not repaid. Without this reserve, an unpaid loan on the asset side of a bank's balance sheet would require an adjustment of deposits or net worth on the liability side. The loan loss reserve is used for this adjustment.

SCARCE GOOD: A resource with an available quantity less than its desired use. Scarce resources are also called factors of production. Scarce goods are also termed economic goods. Scarce resources are used to produce scarce goods. Like the more general society-wide condition of scarcity, a given resource is scarce because it has a limited availability in combination with a greater (potentially unlimited) productive use. It's both of these that make it scarce. In other words, even though an item is quite limited it will not be a scarce resource if it has few if any uses (think pocket lint and free good).
