FIAT MONEY: A medium of exchange (money) with value in exchange, but little or no value in use. Modern paper currency, coins, and checkable deposits are fiat money. The value of fiat money comes from the public's general willingness to accept it in exchange for other goods. This willingness comes from the fact that EVERYONE is willing to accept fiat money in exchange, which largely depends on the public's confidence in the authority (usually government) issuing the fiat money. Fiat money is NOT valuable unto itself, but it is valuable for what it can buy.

FOREIGN EXCHANGE MARKET: A market that trades foreign exchange. The currencies of the advanced nations, and many of the lesser developed ones, are at the top of what's traded in this market. The price at which one currency is traded for another in this market is the exchange rate. Like many "markets" this one is not located at any particular place, but includes transactions around the globe. As you might expect, banks handle a lot of these transactions.

FOREIGN TRADE

The exchange of goods and services between the domestic sector of a given nation and its foreign sector (that is, other nations of the world). Also termed international trade when viewed from the perspective of the global economy, this exchange of production is comparable to any exchange, except that buyers and sellers are from different countries. Key insight from the study of foreign trade includes the law of comparative advantage and trade protection policies.

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time watching infomercials seeking to buy either a how-to book on building remote controlled airplanes or an extra large beach blanket. Be on the lookout for door-to-door salesmen.
