- In theoretical economics, investment means the production of capital goods - goods which are not consumed but instead used in future production. Examples include building a railroad, or a factory, clearing land, or putting oneself through college.
- In finance, investment means buying assets, for example equity investment or real estate investment. These investments may then provide a future income and increase in value.
