Definition of Rent

Rent
Rent Rent, n. (Polit. Econ.) (a) That portion of the produce of the earth paid to the landlord for the use of the ``original and indestructible powers of the soil;' the excess of the return from a given piece of cultivated land over that from land of equal area at the ``margin of cultivation.' Called also economic, or Ricardian, rent. Economic rent is due partly to differences of productivity, but chiefly to advantages of location; it is equivalent to ordinary or commercial rent less interest on improvements, and nearly equivalent to ground rent. (b) Loosely, a return or profit from a differential advantage for production, as in case of income or earnings due to rare natural gifts creating a natural monopoly.
