Spending is the act of spending (spend money on something, deteriorate with use). In an economic sense, the amount that is spent or has been spent is known as an expense. Expenditure is a concept of utility both for families and for Business or for him government.

SpendingA family needs to control its spending so that the income allows it to meet its obligations and meet its needs. A company, for its part, must know its expenses in detail since they threaten its profit or profits. In the case of a government, which does not seek financial gain, spending control is important to avoid fiscal deficit.

The payment of services (electricity, gas, telephony) and the purchase of food, for example, are part of a family’s expense. Companies will also spend on inputs and salaries, while a government will spend on public works.

In this sense, we have to emphasize that, for example, all self-employed or self-employed workers usually make a monthly budget in order to know the status of their company. Hence, he establishes a document where he collects both the income he receives and the expenses (periodic and unforeseen). In this way, you will be able to know if the business in question is growing, if it is stagnant or if its profits are sufficient to maintain its economy.

It is called public spending to that carried out by public administrations. The social spending It is the public expense that is destined to cover the basic necessities of the people.

And all this without forgetting that there is also the representation expense. This refers to the monetary amount that is granted, for example, to a political representative so that he can meet the expenses involved in attending the different social activities that he must carry out.

In the same way, and starting from this meaning, we can underline the fact that there are various colloquial expressions that make use of the term that we are dealing with now. Thus, for example, there is the adverbial phrase “run with expenses” that is used to refer to the fact that someone is the one who is going to pay all the expenses generated by an activity itself. An example of this meaning would be the following sentence: “Manuel paid all the expenses for the company lunch.”

But that is not the only expression that uses the concept that we are addressing. Another that does the same is “cover expenses.” With the same, what is tried to express is that a business itself is generating the necessary production to be able to face just all the expenses that have been created.

For the physical, the flow is the amount of liquid or gas that passes through a pipe or an orifice during a certain time and under certain circumstances.

Regarding the deterioration due to use, the expense refers to the problems, failures or shortcomings that arise in a thing before its use on repeated occasions. A pair of shoes can suffer the expense after several walks: “My shoes are so worn that I slip”.
