DISCOUNT RATE: The interest rate that the Federal Reserve System charges for loans to banks. To ensure that our nation's banks retain their liquidity and remain in business, the Federal Reserve System stands ready to lend bank reserves on a moment's notice to any bank. The discount rate is the interest rate the Federal Reserve System charges for these loans. Like any interest rate, when it goes up (or down) it discourages (or encourages) borrowing. In principle, the Fed can use the discount rate to control our nation's money supply.

    NET PRIVATE DOMESTIC INVESTMENT

    Expenditures on capital goods to be used for productive activities in the domestic economy that are undertaken by the business sector during a given time period, after deducting capital depreciation. This is the official item in the National Income and Product Accounts maintained by the Bureau of Economics Analysis measuring net capital investment expenditures. More specifically net private domestic investment is found by subtracting the capital consumption adjustment from gross private domestic investment. Its primary function is to measure the net increase in the capital stock resulting from investment.
