The Foolish Dictionary, by Gideon Wurdz
Something often sold in place of goods.
Discounting is a financial mechanism in which a debtor obtains the right to delay payments to a creditor, for a defined period of time, in exchange for a charge or fee. Essentially, the party that owes money in the present purchases the right to delay the payment until some future date. The discount, or charge, is the difference between the original amount owed in the present and the amount that has to be paid in the future to settle the debt. The discount is usually associated with a discount rate, which is also called the discount yield. The discount yield is the proportional share of the initial amount owed that must be paid to delay payment for 1 year. discount yield = "charge" to delay payment for 1 year / debt liability It is also the rate at which the amount owed must rise to delay payment for 1 year. Since a person can earn a return on money invested over some period of time, most economic and financial models assume the discount yield is the same as the rate of return the person could receive by investing this money elsewhere over the given period of time covered by the delay in payment.
