Debt

Money borrowed.

Debt

Any money owed to an individual, company, or other organization. One acquires debt when one borrows money. Generally speaking, one acquires debt for a specific purpose, such as funding a college education or purchasing a house. In business and government, debt is often issued in the form of bonds, which are tradeable securities entitling the bearer to repayment at the appropriate time(s). Occasionally, especially for personal loans, debt is issued without interest or other compensation; one simply pays back what was lent. This is exceedingly rare in business and a debtor almost always compensates a creditor with a certain amount of interest, representing the time value of money. However, some areas of finance, especially Islamic banking, do not allow debt with interest.
