Episode 26 - Do You Understand Time Value of Money?

July 4, 2018

Today, Matt Halloran and Justin Bennett discuss an important economic concept called time value of money. Time value of money refers to the highest net rate of return available to an individual, family, or business.

In other words, time value of money represents an opportunity cost when money is spent today instead of saved for tomorrow.
