But according to David Bach, author of the Finish Rich book series and founder of www.FinishRich.com, the financial downturn changed these perceptions. "Good debt and bad debt is almost a myth that we were sold for 20 years," Bach says. "There's just debt. For the most part, debt is basically bad and difficult. It comes down to the interest rate."

Debt now seems to fall into two new categories: better debt and worse debt. Better debt is a loan with a low interest rate used to purchase something that adds value. Worse debt is used to buy a depreciating asset or debt used as a substitute for cash. A home loan, according to Bach, is an example of better debt.
