high finance Finance is a term that deals with the liquid resources of governments, enterprises, organizations, and individuals.  The financial system involves printing and circulating money, providing banking facilities, granting credit, and making investments.  Simply put, finance is the process whereby entities that need funds or capital and can put them to productive uses borrow from those who have saved liquid assets, with agreed-upon interest payments as the incentive.

The three primary types of finance are personal finance, business finance, and public finance.  Personal finance deals with family budgeting, personal savings and investments, and consumer credit issues.  Business finance uses quantitative accounting data, statistical tools, and economic theory to further the objectives of a business entity.  Public finance involves government taxation and expenditures, as well as the financing of government budget deficits via marketable securities and other means.  Since the economic difficulties of the 1930s, the role of public finance in the economic affairs of the United States has increased markedly.

Although common economic principles are involved in all types and levels of financial transactions, there are different financial and societal issues that affect international, corporate, and personal finance.  The International Finance Corporation is a member of the World Bank Group and is a leading source of equity and loan financing for private sector projects in the developing world.  The American Finance Association is an academic organization that publishes the journal Finance and is devoted to the study and promotion of knowledge about financial economics.  For individuals, an excellent personal finance resource is MyMoney.gov.  Here on ChosenSites.us, you will find a wide range of investing, credit, and personal finance information resources.
