The debate of whether cash is a wealth or a liability is a common one to hear in the financial world. There are some who argue that it is a wealth while others will argue that it is only a liability.
There is no arguing that all of us have some type of liability or some sort of debt, and it is true that we need to protect ourselves against that. However, it is not true that everyone who has any type of debt is actually a liability as opposed to an asset, nor do we consider people who have no debt as assets.
Assets are those things that are tangible such as cars, boats, houses, and so forth. Liabilities, on the other hand, are things that are not tangible such as loans, student loans, credit card debt, and so forth. Liability can be both a good and bad thing because liability can be both something that make someone a good risk for lending money to, and something that can take away from their overall value.
If you own a house, and if you have many liabilities then it is probably a good idea to be aware that you may be a liability. Liability is very important to consider when buying property because it can cost you money in the future if you are unable to make your payments.
While it may not be a good idea to have too much of an asset, it can be very important to have a lot of liability because if you lose everything due to you not being able to make your payments, you might be left with very little. However, if you have very little liability, you can afford to be a very good risk for a lender and can borrow a lot more money than you could ever afford to repay.
For some people, having a lot of both assets and liabilities can be a good thing as it means that they have good assets and bad liabilities, and they know they have the ability to pay back their debt if they need to. People who have poor credit cards can benefit from having a lot of both assets and liabilities because if something happens to them, they will have money to help them out.
However, people who are very rich should never think that it is a good asset to have. There is a difference between having a lot of both assets and liabilities and having none at all. If someone has a lot of both assets and a lot of none, then they are not financially healthy and cannot handle themselves well in an emergency.
For some people it might not be so much a matter of whether or not they are a good asset or liability but of how badly they need it that money. while for others it will be more a question of how badly you need it and how much you are willing to borrow. That is why we say that it is better to have some assets and no debt than a lot of debt and no assets.
Having assets is better than having no assets because it means that you do not need to borrow money to finance your expenses. You already have your own money, and therefore you don’t need to have a credit card or loan. If you have no assets you don’t have to worry about losing them, and they are yours to keep.
Having a lot of assets and a lot of none is a better option because when times get tough you will have money saved, and that can make the difference between survival and financial failure. Even if you don’t need it, you might still have some to help you out in the end.
If you own a business, you may find that having a lot of either assets or no assets can hurt your long term success. if you buy and sell assets to pay off the debts of your business, this will mean you have less money when times get hard.
When you think about it this way, there is a strong case that owning a business is a good idea, but when you are looking at buying a home it is important to look at both assets and no assets and determine which is better for you. If you really need money, you may have to decide which one of these options is best for you.
