valorize (VAL-uh-ryz) verb tr.
To maintain the price of a commodity at a high level through government action.
[From Portuguese valorizar, from valor (value, price), from Medieval Latin, from Latin valere (to be strong).]
Valorizing is, in fact, price-fixing by government. A few other words that derive from the same root (wal-) are valence, valiant, valid, value, avail, and convalesce.
"This leads to a tendency for realized earnings to fall below the level
that would validate or re-valorize the capitalized values of corporate
equities and debt service costs."
Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one getting burned. -Buddha (c. 566-480 BCE)
