Discount rate

Definition 1

The rate at which member banks may 

Borrow

 short 

Term

 funds directly from a 

Federal Reserve Bank

. The 

Discount rate

 is one of the two 

Interest

 rates set by the Fed, the other being the 

Federal funds

 rate. The 

Fed

 actually controls this rate directly, but this fact does not really help in 

Policy

 implementation, since banks can also find such funds elsewhere. also called 

Federal Reserve Discount Rate

.

Definition 2

The 

Interest

 rate used in discounting future 

Cash

 flows; here also called 

Capitalization rate

.
