Another consideration for whether or not a business should participate in investment or financing activities is the time value of money.

Take a moment to review Module 4, pages 228–230, starting under the heading "The Time Value of Money". Note that this topic is also covered by Exploring Business, particularly in "Section 13.1: The Functions of Money" and "Section 14.2: Time Is Money".
