DATA FIXATION, in behavioral accounting, is a compulsive preoccupation to focus only upon the numbers without looking beyond for the meaning behind the results themselves.
MONEY SUPPLY is the three categories of money supply (MI, M2, M3) as defined by the U.S. Federal Reserve Board.
M1 The sum of-currency held by the public, plus travelers' checks, plus demand deposits, plus other checkable deposits-i.e., negotiable order of withdrawal (NOW) accounts, automatic transfer service (ATS) accounts and credit union share drafts.
M2 MI plus savings accounts and small-denomination time deposits, plus shares in money market mutual funds (other than those restricted to institutional investors) and overnight Eurodollars and repurchase agreements.
M3 M2 plus large-denomination time deposits (over $100,000) at all depository institutions, large-denomination term repurchase agreements and shares in money market mutual funds restricted to institutional investors.
INFLATION HEDGE is a defensive investment that protects against the risk of loss caused by inflation. Tangible investments such as gold, silver and precious gems and coins are inflation hedges.
