Present Value Online Course for Consumers

Present Value

Suppose that you want to have a certain amount of money in the future—say $25,000 to make a down payment on a home. How much do you have to put away today to achieve that goal? Or, what if you win the lottery—do you take a lump sum payment today or equal payments over the next 26 years? Present value is a tool to help you make choices like these.
