Basic Definitions Present Value – earlier money on a time line Future Value – later money on a time line Interest rate – “exchange rate” between earlier  money and later money Eco 635.02                                                                                               Prof. Zhylenko 2
Suppose you invest \$X today at an interest rate of r.  What is the future value in one year? Value in one year = principal + interest =       = \$X + \$X∙r = \$X(1 + r) Future Value (FV) = \$X(1 + r) Suppose you leave the money in for another year.   How much will you have in two years from now? FV = \$X(1 + r)(1 + r) = \$X(1 + r) 2 Future Value Eco 635.02                                                                                               Prof. Zhylenko 3

FV = PV(1 + r) t FV = future value PV = present value r = period interest rate, expressed as a  decimal t = number of periods Future value interest factor = (1 + r) t Future Value: General Formula Eco 635.02                                                                                               Prof. Zhylenko 4
Simple interest  Compound interest If you invest X for two years at interest rate of  r: FV with simple interest = X + X∙r + X∙r = X (1 + 2r) FV with compound interest = X (1 + r) 2 General case: FV with simple interest = X (1 + t∙r) FV with compound interest = X (1 + r) t Effects of Compounding Eco 635.02                                                                                               Prof. Zhylenko 5
