Stock & fund

Yovel addresses land as a stock; sheviit addresses land as a fund. 
Sheviit acknowledges God's claim to the land as a fund; yovel acknowledges the people of Israel's claim to the land as a stock. 
Yovel is thus a year for acknowledging Man's side of the ledger while sheviit is a year for acknowledging God's side of the ledger.
