LIQUIDITY: The ease of converting an asset into money (either checking accounts or currency) in a timely fashion with little or no loss in value. Money is the standard for liquidity because it is, well, money and no conversion is needed. Other assets, both financial and physical have varying degrees of liquidity. Savings accounts, certificates of deposit, and money market accounts are highly liquid. Stocks, bonds, and are another step down in liquidity. While they can be "cashed in," price fluctuations, brokerage fees, and assorted transactions expenses tend to reduce their money value. Physical assets, like houses, cars, furniture, clothing, food, and the like have substantially less liquidity.

BUSINESS CYCLES: The recurring expansions and contractions of the national economy (usually measured by real gross domestic product). A complete cycle typically lasts from three to five years, but could last ten years or more. It is divided into four phases -- expansion, peak, contraction, and trough. Unemployment inevitably rises during contractions and inflation tends to worsen during expansions. To avoid the inflation and unemployment problems of business cycles, the federal government frequently undertakes various fiscal and monetary policies.

MARKET DEMAND

The combined demand of everyone willing and able to buy a good in a market. Market demand is one half of the market. The other is market supply. It is graphically represented by a negatively-sloped market demand curve, which can be derived by combining, or adding, the individual demands of every buyer in the market.

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time looking for the new strip mall out on the highway hoping to buy either a case for your designer sunglasses or arch supports for your shoes. Be on the lookout for a thesaurus filled with typos.
