COMPARABLE WORTH: The notion that different jobs requiring comparable, but not identical, skills should be paid the same wage. The logic behind comparable worth is that centuries (perhaps even millennia) of discrimination against women by men have relegated women to second-class, poorly paid jobs with little or no chance for advancement. Men, in contrast, with the same education, skills, and abilities are able to get the better, higher paying jobs. Comparable worth would be a program in which different jobs are evaluated and scored, based on the skills, responsibilities, and education needed. Jobs with the same scores would then be required to have the same pay.

ASSUMPTION: An initial condition or statement that sets the stage for an analysis by abstracting from the real world. Assumptions are important to economic theories and economic analysis. Some assumptions are used to simplify a complex analysis into more easily manageable parts. These establish idealistic benchmarks that can be used to evaluate real world conditions. Other assumptions are used as control conditions that are subsequently changed to evaluate the effect of the change. The use of ceteris paribus assumptions in comparative statics analysis is an excellent example.

EXCHANGE RATE POLICIES

Policies undertaken by domestic governments often in conjunction with international financial organizations to control exchange rates through foreign exchange markets. The three most common exchange rate policies are flexible exchange rates, fixed exchange rates, and managed flexible exchange rates. Flexible exchange rates are allowed to adjust through unrestrained forces of demand and supply in the foreign exchange market. Fixed exchange rates are established at a given level. Managed flexible exchange rates are allowed to change within boundaries, but subject to control if they change too much.

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time searching for rummage sales hoping to buy either a flower arrangement with daisies and carnations for your uncle or a coffee cup commemorating next Thursday. Be on the lookout for jovial bank tellers.
