2.) PEER REVIEW
The article explains the time value of money. To summarize, the author states that a dollar today has more value than a dollar tomorrow because money depreciates and loses value due to variables such as inflation and interest rates. The article basically suggests that keeping money under the mattress can lose its worth; the smart thing to do is to invest that money in stocks or put it in an interest yielding account. It is safe to say; money was worth a lot more a few years ago then what it is worth today due to inflation. Vice versa, $1000 earned today will amount to much more in 10 years depending on the increase in inflation rate.
Learn about time value of money, or TVM, and how a present value calculator is used to determine the value of money received at a later date.
3) PEER REVIEW
Time Value of Money
This article talks about the time value of money. It explains that a dollar today is more than a dollar tomorrow. It explains that Compounding is the fundamental ability of an asset (e.g., money) to generate earnings that can then be reinvested to generate further earnings. Giving money a chance to compound results in more money in the end. This compound interest allows money to grow faster than if the same money is invested. Most importantly, compound interest allows your money to grow more quickly when you invest it for longer, as the earned interest is rolled back into your principal so that those profits can start earning interest as well.
