"The concept of "present value" is derived from the fact that any given sum of money has the capacity (if properly invested) to earn additional money over time.

Abstract:

"The concept of "present value" is derived from the fact that any given sum of money has the capacity (if properly invested) to earn additional money over time. Indeed, it is this inherent earning power of money that gives rise to the requirement in most jurisdictions that "present value" adjustments must be made in every situation where damages representing future pecuniary losses are awarded. Part I of this Lessonette® tutorial is designed to explain why certain types of damage awards must be adjusted to their "present value," and to demonstrate precisely how those adjustments are actually calculated. The Lessonette also examines a variety of individual factors that should be taken into consideration in performing various types of "present value" adjustments. This Lessonette tutorial is intended for those students who already have a good working knowledge of the concept of pecuniary damages, including the various individual components of such damages, as well as how they are measured.

Part II of this Lessonette exercise addresses the related concept of adjusting future pecuniary damage awards to account for the potential effects of future economic inflation. This portion of the Lessonette examines in detail three specific methodologies for making such adjustments that were expressly articulated by the U.S. Supreme Court in its decision in Jones & Laughlin Steel Corp. v. Pfeifer, 462 U.S. 523, 76 L. Ed. 2d 768, 103 S. Ct. 2541 (1983).

This Lessonette is considerably longer than most CALI lessons, as it really contains two distinct portions, either of which can be completed separately, or at different sittings. However, the Lessonette as a whole is designed to be completed in its entirety, since adjustments to any future pecuniary damage award generally must take into account both the concept of "present value" as well as that of future inflation.

Students who are unfamiliar with any of the basic underlying damages concepts that are addressed in this Lessonette should consult subject-specific CALI lessons on damages before proceeding with this Lessonette. Finally, it should also be noted that although this Lessonette does address a number of specific mathematical formulas by which present value and related future inflation adjustments are made, students need not possess any high level of mathematical or computational skills beyond the most basic math proficiency to successfully complete this Lessonette."--CALI lessons subject list.
