    Hi 3786.asif,

    Here are a few words concerning the matter in question:

    leverage = power

    The spade and fork have longer shafts, providing better leverage. = Spade and fork have long handles that provide a gain in strength.

    leverage = a means for achieving

    I have to try to gain more political leverage. (to try to get more leverage to achieve my political goals)

    leverage = use (for profit)

    leverage = use the loan to carry out financial transactions

    leverage = the use of credit for financial transactions (the use of borrowed money rather than share capital to produce profits, e.g. paying for an investment in shares by means of a loan for which securities have been put up as collateral). An investment is said to have a high leverage if a large proportion of the company’s assets has been bought with borrowed money, i.e. when the company’s debt is high compared with the size of its share capital. Such a company is at a disadvantage because the interest it has to pay on its borrowings reduces its earnings per share.

    “leverage off” could mean the opposite of “leverage”
