Not all #debt is equal. There are generally two types: good and bad debt. Good debt is debt that grows in value, for example a home loan, student loan or car loan. Bad debt is debt incurred to purchase things which lose value quickly, and they have high interest rates. Examples of bad debt include credit cards which aren't managed effectively.
