Online Glossary of Research Economics
The guiding principle is that any term used in any English-language economics research journal that is neither defined there, nor common vocabulary among the mathematically literate belongs here. This is a broad, inclusive list, because it seems that a glossary is more useful that way. There are many terms from mathematics, statistics, sociology, and so forth. Abbreviations of government agencies are included if they seem to be relevant.
