HEDGE: A method of protecting against financial (or other types) of loss by counterbalancing an action. This is commonly seen in the financial markets when investors buy options or futures contracts to protect themselves against price changes. A hedge is essentially a form of insurance. An investor hopes the price of a financial asset doesn't fall, but buying a futures or options contract can reduce the loss if this occurs.

Investment is business expenditures on gross domestic product for capital goods.
  • The green flow from the business sector to the product markets is investment. The physical flow of capital goods moves in the opposite direction.

  • Savers buy legal claims that divert income TO financial markets.
  • Borrowers sell legal claims that divert income OUT of the financial markets.
  • The business sector borrows income through financial markets, which is used to finance capital investment.

This isn't me! What am I?

The average length of a "business lunch" is about 36 minutes.
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
