Credit (from Latin credit, "(he/she/it) believes") is the trust which allows one party to provide money or resources to another party where that second party does not reimburse the first party immediately (thereby generating a debt), but instead promises either to repay or return those resources (or other materials of equal value) at a later date. In other words, credit is a method of making reciprocity formal, legally enforceable, and extensible to a large group of unrelated people.
The resources provided may be financial (e.g. granting a loan), or they may consist of goods or services (e.g. consumer credit). Credit encompasses any form of deferred payment. Credit is extended by a creditor, also known as a lender, to a debtor, also known as a borrower.
Adam Smith believed that barter preceded credit in history, but most recent anthropological research proved otherwise. Barter mostly took place between those individuals who lack trust with one another e.g. hostile or unknown tribes usually made their transactions via barter. On the contrary, members of the same tribe mostly settled their transactions in credit\debt.

Disclosure: I like minimal government and low taxes!
Oregon has provided tax credits for all kinds of products from electric cars to toilets to wood stoves, etc. I guess they feel these products somehow supported the public good in one way or another. Many anti gun people claim the anti gun...
Mixing politics and business is bad business. Just ask the NFL.
But that isn’t stopping the credit service, Intuit, from taking a stance against the Constitution.
Intuit, without warning, ceased processing credit card payments at firearm-related businesses across the country, resulting in...
