What Are the Different Types of Good and Bad Debt?

Not all debt is equal; there is good debt and bad debt. If you are a debtor, debt is good if it will help you accumulate wealth in the future. Good debt is something that you will make money from over time such as home loans, student debt, or borrowing to expand your business.

Just by regularly paying down your debt you can benefit. That’s because you build up a good track record in your credit file, making it easier to borrow when you need ‘good debt’ in the future. A good record may also mean you benefit from lower interest rates, or at least avoid higher ones.

Bad debt, on the other hand, is lost money. Debt is bad when you’re borrowing unnecessarily for goods or services that won’t help you financially in the future. It usually means you’re living beyond your means and falling behind financially.

From the perspective of the creditor, good debt will be paid within an agreed timeframe, potentially with interest, depending on the agreement. Bad debt is the debt that is not collectible and will need to be written off.

Bad business debt could result from lending money to an unreliable customer, a customer whose circumstances suddenly change, or from fraud. Sometimes the cost of pursuing a debt through a debt collection agency is not worth the value of recovering it.

Most businesses make sales on credit. This debt is treated as an asset however, it is typical to have some provision for bad debt in the accounting process to try to protect themselves from write-offs.

Debt collection software such as iCollect is a highly effective way for businesses to deal with late and unpaid bills – better to find a way for the debt to be collected than end up paying for it yourself!

Viagra alternatives works better

Last week, the United States equivalent to the Medical Products Agency, FDA, approved a new drug - Addyi (flibanserin 100 mg). The Sprout Pharmaceuticals supplier certainly cried up a bottle and journalists around the world wrote about this little pill. For Addyi is not any pill, it's the long-awaited pink Viagra.

Thus, a medicine that is expected to revolutionize women's most common sex problems (low lust) in the same way as Viagra revolutionized men's most common sex problems (erectile dysfunction) when it came in 1998. And clearly everyone wants to rewrite pink Viagra, everyone wants to rewrite sex, especially when It gets a nice scientific setting.

The subject of Pink Viagra comes up in the media on a regular basis and the conversation follows about the same pattern. In one corner, cheerful insistence that science can finally be close to finding the key to women's sex drive. In others, one and another feminist chronicle concludes that women may not want to lie because they take the main responsibility for the home and the children. The fascinating thing is that in the middle of the conversation about sex and science is the obvious few who actually talk about science.
