CHAPTER 2 At some time in your life, you may need to spend more money than you happen to have on hand—perhaps for your education, for a car, or for a house. Assuming that you don’t have a fairy godmother who will drop the needed cash in your lap, where will you get the money you need? By borrowing from people who have funds available to lend. Later in life, you may be the lender, when you are setting aside savings for your retirement. At that point, you will be looking for worthy borrowers who will use your money productively in exchange for paying you a return on your savings. As you can see, the process of saving and borrowing serves two functions. It provides funds for the person who needs an infusion of cash for a particular purchase, and it provides a way for people who have funds available to lend to earn a return on their savings. Savings are made available to borrowers in several ways. In some cases, savers transfer money directly to a borrower. In other cases, savers deposit their money in F nancial intermediaries, such as banks, that, in turn, lend the money to borrowers.
