The description is plagiarized from the website Investopedia. Should be fixed immediately by someone knowledgeable. I'm trying to understand the concept and I've found conflicting definitions. (talk) 22:35, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

Awfully dense lede[edit]

The introduction here is written in incredibly dense "legalese" that doesn't seem to match wikipedia's style. It also has a striking lack of examples of what goodwill actually is, making this article rather impenetrable to a layperson. It would be nice if someone with a good handle on the subject could rewrite the entire lede or at least insert some concrete examples.
