Intro to Finance

When people think of finance, they often think of Wall Street, which does make sense, but that is not what I am talking about. 

Finance is considered to be a broad term, because it can describe two related activities.  These activities are the study of how money is managed, and the actual process of acquiring needed funds.  Because there are three sections that all need funding to operate, finance is often separated into three subcategories: Personal Finance, Corporate Finance and Public Finance.  I will be discussing personal finance. 

Personal Finance is the handling of money.  It will involve all financial decisions and activities of an individual or household.  It encompasses the practice of earning, saving, investing, and of course spending.  The matters of personal finance include the purchasing of financial products, such as cred cards, life insurance, home insurance, care insurance, house payments and of course various investments in vehicles and other investments. 

Next time I will go over more on personal finance and key terms that should be known.
