1993 SNA Update Information - Review of SNA terminology for user-friendliness

Clarification description
The terminology raised by European Central Bank: The present SNA terminology makes extensive use of the word “other’ of rather complex and comprehensive terms. Examples are: changes in classification of assets and liabilities other than monetisation/demonetization of gold; other financial intermediaries except insurance and pension funds; securities other than shares; other accounts receivable/payable. This makes it difficult for economists and analysts to use the exact terminology and encourages/stimulates them to use their own terminology, which in turn may lead to confusion and undermine the use of the statistical concepts.
