    An economics law that suggests that the existence of excess supply in one market must be matched by excess demand in another market so that it balances out.

    Two options with different market prices that an investor trades on the same underlying security. The higher priced option is purchased and the lower premium option is sold - both at the same time.

  5. Odious Debt

    Money borrowed by one country from another country and then misappropriated by national rulers.
