Revenue


Rédito is a word derived from the Latin “reditus” which means “to return”. Within the financial context, it refers to the utility or profit generated by capital. It is seen as a synonym of interest, which understands that it is the utility that, in a renewable way, offers any investment and that, in general, is measured as a percentage. The most important revenue is obtained when the profit is high in a short period of time and with little investment.

For example: when bank interest rates are very low, the person will obtain a higher return if he invests in homes and then rents them.

Money deposited in a bank can provide benefits in the form of interest. Therefore, when an already established capital produces a profit, it is said that it generates income.

This word is also associated with allegorical or immaterial things. Revenue, being synonymous with benefit, can be applied in common language as follows: a boxer can profit from the exhaustion of his rival, what this means is that he will try to take advantage of his opponent’s fatigue to achieve victory . This is in sports.

Now, if it is taken to the political context, the revenue has a negative meaning, since in theory, politicians should work for the communities, when one of them evidences a search for personal interest, he is accused of walking the hunt for electoral or political gain, that is, politicians work because they need the votes of the people and not to execute any contribution or aid to the population.

Currently there are many political actors who have profited from many circumstances, daily it can be seen how politicians accuse each other of carrying out certain actions with the sole purpose of obtaining votes in the next elections. For example, when we observe cases like that of Venezuela, where social benefits such as housing and pensions are granted to the elderly, not with the aim of benefiting the population, but with the purpose of gaining political interest with these actions.
