EURODOLLARS: Bank accounts denominated in U.S. dollars but held in banks outside of the United States. This is notable because banks typically maintain deposits in their domestic currency. Deposits in a German bank, for example, would be denominated in German marks. Originally Eurodollars were dollar deposits in European banks (hence the term "Eurodollars"). However, the notion of deposits held by a bank in currency other than that of the domestic economy has become a common practice around the world. Eurodollars are near monies added to M1 to obtain broader monetary aggregates, M2 and M3.

GEOGRAPHIC MOBILITY: The mobility, or movement, of factors of production from a productive activity in one location to a productive activity in another location. In particular, geographic mobility is the ease with which resources can change locations. For example, a worker leaves a job in one city and takes a job in another city. Some factors are highly mobile and thus are easily moved between cities, states, and even countries. Other factors are highly immobile and not easily relocated. You might want to compare geographic mobility with occupation mobility, the movement of factors from one type of productive activity to another type of productive activity.

LAISSEZ FAIRE

The notion that government should not intervene into production, consumption, and exchange activities and that the private sector (households and businesses) should be free to make allocation decisions. Laissez faire is a French term that roughly translates into "allow to act." It has been the rallying cry for many people (primarily business leaders) who oppose government intervention, regulation, or even taxation since it was popularized in the late 1700s by Adam Smith in The Wealth of Nations.
