DEPRECIATION: A more or less permanent decrease in value or price. "More or less permanent" doesn't include temporary, short-term drops in price that are common in many markets. It's only those price declines that reflect a reduction in consumer satisfaction. While all sorts of stuff can depreciate in value, some of the more common ones are capital, real estate, corporate stock, and money. The depreciation of capital results from the rigors of production and affects our economy's ability to produce stuff. A sizable portion of our annual investment is thus needed to replace depreciated capital. The depreciation of a nation's money is seen as an increase in the exchange rate. This process is described in detail in the entry on the J curve.

It seems as though my handy OmniStraight shoestring straightener has inadvertently dissected my shoestring, mangled the upper half of my jogging shoe, and introduced several gashes to the top of my foot. As I faint face-first onto the sidewalk from the loss of blood, you can consider some of the ins and outs of my predicament.
