English term or phrase: to trade cash for future claims
Competent investors take great pride in their ability to place an appropriate value on a financial claim. This ability is the core of investing: markets are just vehicles to trade cash for future claims, and vice versa.
OK, here‘s a cash-flow stream for you to value: Say the house flips a fair coin. If it lands on heads, you receive two dollars and the game ends. If it lands on tails, the house flips again. If the second flip lands on heads, you get four dollars; if it lands on tails, the game continues. For each successive round, the payoff for landing on heads doubles (je., $2, $4, $8, $16, etc.) and you progress to the next round until you land on heads. How much would you pay to play this garne?
