Ever the helpful sort, Goldman Sachs has launched its latest set of buzzword explainers to help us avoid becoming 2016 trend luddites.
The Capitalist will admit to knowing only one of the three new key phrases Goldman has detailed and explained in video form – brace yourselves.
The first is, apparently, "OLED".
No, not the Russian-sounding man in the IT department. OLED is in fact an "organic light emitting diode", and is "the next generation display technology in electronics and lighting". Duly noted.

Second: "machine vision". This is a result of machines that rely on the coordination of 3D sensors, cameras and image processing software "to do things better than the human eye ever could".
Suppose 2016 isn't too early for our robot overlords to be making an appearance.
And finally, one we all might have heard of, "craft". Specifically, "craft products".
The antidote, for some, to mass production.
And now you know! Tell everyone. Drop them into conversation when you've put down that copy of The Economist you haven't read.
Mention them in passing when someone talks about wanting to get a new TV (OLED), mistrusting factory processes (machine vision) or wanting to overspend on booze (craft).
If you need help remembering, The Capitalist has favoured flashcards.
Though maybe Goldman Sachs has a new phrase for those too.
