French term or phrase:Encours
Hello All, can someone please provide the definitive translation - if there is one - of 'encours' as I am never quite sure how to translate it. Here are two sentences: "Les ménages ont encore réduit leurs dépenses, et corrélativement les banques ont diminué leurs encours de prêts," and "Les échéances les plus longues se sont bien comportées, surtout aux Etats-Unis, où le Gouvernement a procédé au rachat d’une partie de l’encours de la dette."
Explanation: In bank accounting, encours would be loans not yet paid off by consumers: outstanding loans.
In macro (country) accounting, it would be the outstanding debt. What hasn't been paid off.
And of course, in manufacturing, it refers to "in-progress" products; not yet finished. Hope this helps.

Public debt charges are determined by the stock of debt outstanding and by interest rate developments, the latter which can react to both economic and non-economic events.
