There are tons of books and articles written on the topic of debt, and rightly so. Most people lack even basic financial education and this is one of the reasons for the never before seen extremes in personal indebtedness. This section of Financial Dictionary tries to shed a light on several debt related topics.
Every debt starts with a credit, and helping understand credit will help you understand debt better. Here you can learn about credit bureaus that keep records of your credit history, and get facts about your credit report. People with several high-interested debts, may be interested in learning more about debt consolidation. If you want to invest in the stock market, then understanding what is company's Debt-Equity Ratio is a must.
Other debt related terms of more unpleasant flavor are bankruptcy, foreclosure, default, delinquency, liability, lien, and collection agency.
Although the topics discussed in our debt section might not be the favorite for a table conversation, they are still very important, for one's financial well-being.
