Dear Money


Dear Money
A situation in which money or loans are very difficult to obtain in a given country. If you do have the opportunity to secure a loan, then interest rates are usually extremely high. Also known as "tight money".

This situation can be a result of a restricted money supply, causing interest rates to be pushed up due to the forces of supply and demand. Businesses may have a tough time raising capital during a period of dear money.
