WHAT DOES EX ANTE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Ex-ante

The term ex-ante (sometimes written ex ante or exante) is a phrase meaning "before the event". Ex-ante is used most commonly in the commercial world, where results of a particular action, or series of actions, are forecast in advance (or intended). The opposite of ex-ante is ex-post (actual) (or ex post). Examples: ▪ In the financial world, the ex-ante return is the expected return of an investment portfolio. ▪ In the recruitment industry, ex-ante is often used when forecasting resource requirements on large future projects. The ex-ante (and ex-post) reasoning in economic topics was introduced mainly by Swedish economist Gunnar Myrdal in his 1927–39 work on monetary theory, who described it in this way: "An important distinction exists between prospective and retrospective methods of calculating economic quantities such as incomes, savings, and investments; and a corresponding distinction of great theoretical importance must be drawn between two alternative methods of defining these quantities.
