Debt is the obligation or commitment to pay or repay something. Most financial debts are paid with money and usually include a repayment term.

When talking about debt, a distinction can be made between good debt and bad debt depending on whether it is used to buy a liability (something that will not generate income or appreciate in value) or an asset (something that will generate money or increase in value over time).
