What is Credit?

Credit is made to help people pay for the things that they need when they don't have any money. But the problem with this is that people don't use it for the things that they need they use it for the things that they want at times to. This is a problem because all the things you put credit on are going to have to be payed off in some way or another. Then if you don't have enough money to pay off all the things that you payed for you will be in debt. Some people end up so much in debt they aren't even able to pay off the bill for college later in life.
