ZERO-SUM GAME: A situation in which a fixed amount is divided up among the winners and losers. In a zero-sum game the wins equal the losses. Many stock market, or financial market, exchanges are zero-sum. One person buys low and sells high, while another buys high and sells low. The wealth in such transactions are merely transferred from one person to another. "Productive" market transactions, in contrast, are not zero-sum. The act of producing goods and services from resources that are consumed to satisfy wants and needs results in a net gain to society.

UNEMPLOYED PERSONS: People who are NOT actively engaged in the production of goods and services, but ARE actively seeking employment in the production of goods and services. This is one of three official categories used to classify individuals by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) based on information obtained from the Current Population Survey. The other two categories are employed persons and not in the labor force. The sum of employed persons and unemployed persons constitute the civilian labor force. While the general notion of unemployed persons is people who are willing and able to work, but not working, the BLS has specific criteria designed to capture unemployment.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time calling an endless list of 800 numbers seeking to buy either a T-shirt commemorating the first day of winter or software that won't crash your computer. Be on the lookout for poorly written technical manuals.

The portrait on the quarter is a more accurate likeness of George Washington than that on the dollar bill.
"Carpe diem! Rejoice while you are alive; enjoy the day; live life to the fullest; make the most of what you have. It is later than you think."
