A famous quarterback just signed a $15 million contract providing $3 million a year for 5 years (assume that he gets paid at the end of each year). A less famous receiver signed a $14 million 5-year contract providing $4 million now and $2 million a year for 5 years (assume he gets the $2 million payments at the end of the year). The interest rate is 10 percent. Who is better paid?
