Re: living outside of the system
There are a lot of people out there who can't perceive of any other way to purchase the big ticket items (houses, cars, etc.) except through credit.
But surely, in the back of many people's minds, there's a nagging idea that there's something intrinsically, or inherently wrong with the whole 'buy now, pay later' system. Especially when so much interest is charged. It goes against common sense.
