Host: What is Debt?
Linda Stroman: Debt is based an expense that has occurred by individuals. Basically, when we want to have a periodical service to a creditor and it is an agreement that we make with them to pay for this periodical service and debt comes in different forms. We have high debt, low debt, long-term debt, short-term debt. Basically, everyone in America has some types of debt load. The whole idea was to make sure that we do not have excessive debt and that we can try to pay as much with cash as we can do versus credit card. GHNP'=>BFa''()*29AC-.
