AMORTIZATION: The process of paying off a debt liability and accrued interest through a series of equal, periodic payments. Car loans and mortgages are two debts commonly paid off through amortization. Your monthly car payment, for example, partially pays for interest accrued on the outstanding balance and partly reduces that balance. Because one payment reduces the outstanding balance, each subsequent payment has a smaller portion for interest. If the proper amortization schedule has been calculated, your loan will be paid off with the last payment.

UNEMPLOYED PERSONS: People who are NOT actively engaged in the production of goods and services, but ARE actively seeking employment in the production of goods and services. This is one of three official categories used to classify individuals by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) based on information obtained from the Current Population Survey. The other two categories are employed persons and not in the labor force. The sum of employed persons and unemployed persons constitute the civilian labor force. While the general notion of unemployed persons is people who are willing and able to work, but not working, the BLS has specific criteria designed to capture unemployment.

FALLACY OF FALSE AUTHORITY

The logical fallacy of arguing that something is "correct" or "true" because an "expert" in an unrelated area says so. This is commonly used by both advertisers, politicians, and anyone who relies an "apparent expert" for the "correct" answers to controversial issues.
