DISINVESTMENT: A drop in the total quantity of capital in the economy because the depreciation of existing capital is greater than investment in new capital. In other words, the capital we have is wearing out faster than we're replacing it with new stuff. This isn't good. At best, it limits economic growth and might even cause the economy's pie to shrink if increases in other resources don't kick in.

TAX EVASION: An illegal reduction in taxes. Tax evasion occurs when someone fails to pay their legal taxes. This is the sort of thing that leads to a prison sentence. Ethical considerations aside, it is also the sort of thing that's likely to happen if tax rates are high or unpopular.

FIXED EXCHANGE RATE

An exchange rate that is established at a specific level and maintained through government actions (usually through monetary policy actions of a central bank). To fix an exchange rate, a government must be willing to buy and sell currency in the foreign exchange market in whatever amounts are necessary to keep the exchange rate fixed. A fixed exchange rate typically disrupts the balance of trade and balance of payments for a country. But in many cases, this is exactly what a country is seeking to do. This is one of three basic exchange rate policies used by domestic governments. The other two policies are flexible exchange rate and managed flexible exchange rate.
