English term or phrase: meshek
The word meshek tends to be a little confusing in certain contexts. For example, what would the following translate into: שכיר במשק and שכר ממוצע במשק? Economy doesn't seem to work here. market? industry?

Thank you!

Explanation:
You are right, meshek is an Israeli Hebrew slang for Economy in general. In some cases you may translate as marketplace like "wages in the marketplace". Use industry only when you refer to a cpecific one.
