http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consideration_under_American_law

"Consideration is the central concept in the common law of contracts and
is required, in most cases, for a contract to be enforceable.
Consideration is the price one pays for another's promise. It can take a
number of forms: money, property, a promise, the doing of an act, or
even refraining from doing an act. In broad terms, if one agrees to do
something he was not otherwise legally obligated to do, it may be said
that he has given consideration. "
