WILDCAT STRIKE: An unofficial and usually spontaneous strike or work stoppage by union members. A wildcat strike is not authorized by the labor union representing the workers. Such strikes generally occur because (1) labor has specific problems or concerns that have not been satisfactorily addressed by employers or (2) workers feel that union leaders are not acting in the best interest of the union members. This is also termed an outlaw strike.

SIXTH RULE OF IGNORANCE: The sixth of seven basic rules of the economy. It is a fact of life that obtaining information is a costly activity, it requires resources that have alternative uses. As such, no one knows everything and everyone is ignorant about something. I might know a lot about economics, but you can recite every line of every episode of "Gilligan's Island", and that weird-looking guy you bumped into at the store has a detailed account of everything you've done for the past five years.
