The Financial Times Lexicon


Building on this earlier post about Investopedia's great function as a business dictionary and beyond, another excellent resource for terminology is the Financial Times Lexicon.  Like Investopedia FT also offers some other nice bells and whistles besides a dictionary alone.  Select a term, e.g. "intellectual capital," and beneath the defintion you'll find a link to search the website for articles that feature the word or phrase.  You can also save you favorite buzzwords and see their evolution in a Watchlist which you can access by registering for FT's free-level subscription. And best of all, some enterprising employee-who-knows-java made a widget for anyone who wants to embed the FT Lexicon on their business education type website, and they even included tips for customizing it via CSS or HTML.  Thank you, FT!
