ADVERSE SELECTION: When a negotiation between two people with different amounts of information, that is, asymmetric information, restricts the quality of the good traded.

INTEREST RATE: The price of funds expressed as a percentage of the total amount loaned or borrowed. This is the cost of borrowing funds and the payment received for lending. Interest rates are invariably expressed as an annual percentage of the amount borrowed/loaned. A 10 percent interest rate, to run through an easy example, tells us that the cost of borrowing $1,000 for one year is $100.

CONSUMER PRICE INDEX

An index of prices of goods and services typically purchased by urban consumers. The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is compiled and published monthly by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), using price data obtained from an elaborate survey of 25,000 retail outlets and quantity data generated by the Consumer Expenditures Survey. The CPI is one of two key price indexes used as a measure of the price level and to estimate the inflation rate. The other is the GDP price deflator. The CPI is also officially designated as the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U). Another noted price index is the Producer Price Index (PPI).
