X-M: The abbreviation for net exports, which is the difference between exports, goods and services produced by the domestic economy and purchased by the foreign sector, and imports, goods and services produced by the foreign sector and purchased by the domestic economy. While exports and imports important unto themselves, when combined into a single measure net exports captures the overall interaction between the foreign sector and the domestic economy. Arithmetically speaking, if exports exceed imports, then net exports are positive, and if imports exceed exports, the net exports are negative.

MEDIATION: Intervention by an impartial third party to settle disputes between two others. The actions of this third party--the mediator--are not legally binding. Mediators are frequently used in collective bargaining negotiations when unions and their employers have reached an impasse. Mediators help both sides work out a satisfactory agreement. But neither side is legally compelled to follow the mediator's advice.
