A Brief Guide to Defining Money

The Economics Glossary defines money as follows:

Money is a good that acts as a medium of exchange in transactions. Classically it is said that money acts as a unit of account, a store of value, and a medium of exchange. Most authors find that the first two are nonessential properties that follow from the third. In fact, other goods are often better than money at being intertemporal stores of value, since most monies degrade in value over time through inflation or the overthrow of governments.

The Purpose of Money

So, money isn’t just pieces of paper. It’s a medium of exchange that facilitates trade. Suppose I have a Wayne Gretzky hockey card that I’d like to exchange for a new pair of shoes. Without the use of money, I have to find a person, or combination of people who have an extra pair of shoes to give up, and

Cheap personal loans guide including loan calculator

This is one of the most common question about loans. You should never aim just to consolidate – it’s often a disaster waiting to happen. If you’ve a lot of small loans or credit card debts, the primary aim should be to pay them as quickly as you can at the lowest possible rate.

Don’t be suckered in by the promise that a consolidation loan can save you money by reducing your outgoings to a “manageable” level using just “one single monthly payment”.

They can – but the way they do this is by stretching your borrowing over a longer period, maybe 15, 20 or even 25 years. That means the amount you pay back is going to be huge, as you’re paying interest for much longer.

A £10,000 loan on a high street credit card at a horrid 18% APR costs £5,240 in interest if paid off within five

Credit, Credit Scores and Credit Reports

Which comes first, your credit or your first credit card? That’s not much easier to answer than, “Which came first the chicken or the egg?”

The reality is that your credit comes after your first credit card or loan. No loans, no credit cards means no credit.

There’s credit—an advance to buy something—and then there’s your credit—aka your credit file.

Credit

Credit is essentially a loan from a bank or other financial institution, including a credit card issuer. These entities are collectively known as creditors or lenders and extend credit to you in the form of:

  • Installment loans —aka installment credit—such as a mortgage or car loan
  • Lines of credit or credit cardswith a maximum usable credit limit—known as revolving credit
  • Credit arrangements are utilities, memberships (think gym) and service agreements (think cellphone)
  • Charge cards that are like credit cards, but have to
