Standard of Deferred Payment: (closely related to Store of Value function) Loans and future payments are agreed and contracted in money terms, as money units are accepted as the means of settling future accounts. But money only adequate if prot. v. inflation so can be store of value. Unit of Account: the unit of account in which prices quoted and accounting records kept. Not essential could use other stable Numeraires but advantage of divisibility.
