MONEY CHARACTERISTICS: Almost any item, any asset, any "thing" can function as money so long as it is generally accepted as payment. In fact, a lot of different "things" have been used as money over the centuries. While a number of "things" have been used as money, some have worked better than others. Those "things" that didn't work so well were replaced by other "things" that worked better. Those "things" that worked best tended to have four basic characteristics: (1) durability, (2) divisibility, (3) transportability, and (4) noncounterfeitability.

EMPLOYED

The condition in which a resource (especially labor) is actively engaged in a productive activity usually in exchange for an explicit factor payment (such as wage or salary). This general condition forms the conceptual basis for one of the three categories used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) to classify an individual's labor force status. The specific BLS classification is employed persons. The other two BLS categories are unemployed persons and not in the labor force.
