Financial Terms That Have Fallen Out of Use

I find it interesting that certain financial and economic terms seem to have completely fallen out of use, especially in the press. 

Among these I would include “Quality of Earnings” and “Fiduciary Responsibility.”

As well, “Moral Hazard” is still used but surprisingly much less than one would think.  It seems to be on the way out.

What is the significance of these terms falling out of use?

I’m sure there are many other financial and economic terms that have fallen out of use.  Let me know of any others that come to mind…
