Outline Bank – To gain access to the outline bank please email txbusinesslaw@gmail.com with your UT EID. The outline bank is accessed through Canvas and is only available to dues paying members.

TERM OF THE WEEK:

Core Inflation – Core inflation is a measure of inflation that excludes certain items that face volatile price movements. Core inflation eliminates products that can have temporary price shocks because these shocks can diverge from the overall trend of inflation and give a false measure of inflation.

Have a great week!
