OIKONOMOS: This rather strange word is a greek term meaning "household manager" or "household steward" that gave rise to the modern term economy and the whole range of related terms, including economic, economics, economist, and economize. Ironically there are those who use economics less with the goal of providing "stewardship" of the economy and more focused on the goal of extracting maximum personal gain.

PROFIT

Generally speaking, the difference between revenue received by a firm for production and cost incurred in the production, or the excess of revenue over cost. Three specific notions of profit exist, each with a different meaning. Accounting profit is the difference between revenue and accounting cost. Economic profit is the difference between revenue and total opportunity cost. Normal profit is opportunity cost of entrepreneurship. Profit is occasionally used synonymously with the term rent, or economic rent.

A Tycoon Of The MUTUAL FUNDS

Winston Smythe Kennsington III -- our second-estate financial maestro -- has given me a hot, and I mean REALLY HOT, investment tip. Waldo Industries, the parent company of Waldo's TexMex Taco World, is making plans to expand its franchises. Marketing studies show that people are ripe and ready for Waldo's Super Deluxe TexMex Gargantuan Tacos beyond the confines of Shady Valley. For a minimal investment, I can grab a share of this money-making opportunity. A minimal investment to our Ivy-League friend Winnie is $500,000. Unfortunately my bank account, including recent deposits of loose change found on our pedestrian trek, is a few zeros short. Is this another sure-fire financial opportunity that will pass me by?

[What's This?]
