BABY BOOMER: A citizen of the good old U. S. of A. born between the years 1946 and 1960. These Boomers represent a relatively large segment of the population and outnumber any other group born during a similar period, such as those born from 1931 to 1945 or from 1961 to 1975. Over the years, they've tended to set the standard for consumption, production, and politics. They have had and will continue to have a big impact on the Social Security system. As labor, they've provided an amble pool of tax funds and thus sizable benefits to Social Security recipients during the 1980s and 1990s. When these Boomers retire in the 2020s and beyond, however, they will leave a big gap in the labor force and also demand a great deal from the Social Security system.

PRICE LEVEL

The average of the prices of goods and services produced in the aggregate economy. In a theoretical sense, the price level is the price of aggregate production. In a practical sense, the price level is commonly measured by either of two price indexes, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) or the GDP price deflator. The CPI is the price index widely publicized in the media and used by the general public. The GDP price deflator, in contrast, is less well-known, but is usually the price index of choice among economists. The inflation rate is calculated as the percentage change in the price level.

What Do You Have Against DISCRIMINATION?

Hunger is, of course, an avoidable malady when ambling through the economy. At the present, I'm easily tempted by a hamburger, fries, and large cola -- a pedestrian meal if there ever was one. As luck would have it, we've found ourselves at the door of Big Ott's Boiled Burger Buffet. Luck, though, is not totally on our side. Big Ott's has a large sign prominently posted at the entry to his establishment. It screams in no uncertain terms: NO PEDESTRIANS ALLOWED. As a well-known, card-carrying pedestrian, I am, to say the least, taken aback. Why on earth would Big Ott's Boiled Burger Buffet refuse service to pedestrians? A quick quiz of an employee reveals that Big Ott once swerved off the sidewalk to avoid striking a pedestrian, causing extensive damage to his sleek, new OmniMotors XL GT 9000 convertible sport coupe. His anger has been since extended to all who travel by foot.
