When one definition is not enough

The world is constantly evolving. New terms appear, while the old ones can radically change their meanings. We compile legal, business and economics definitions from various sources, including vocabularies, books, academic journal articles, various manuals and white papers. We hope our work will help students and scholars, as well as practitioners and general audience.
