A dollar today is worth more than a dollar tomorrow and you can borrow a dollar today at a lower interest rate than at any other time in the history of the USA, so I can sure think of a advantage to debt.  ​

But why not just save?  Why pay any interest?  Not applicable to houses or cars, I suppose (except in my case, since I don't buy cars worth more than $10k - you are correct - never new cars - depreciation curve -  currently own 2002 Lincoln Town Car - wonderful car - you can't get a ride like this with the small new cars -  25 mpg highway)


I would rather a company be owned by the people who made it great, not by the people who just supplied money.  They get on the board and maybe direct policy in the wrong ways.

Woohoooo!  Excellent words BillW.


I drive a 2003 TownCar and loooove that ride, so quiet, excellent stereo.  Bought it 4 yrs old for a third of its original price, had it 10 years, total maintenance cost in that time less than 200 bucks.  Solid, reliable as an anvil, engine in there the long way, drive wheels in back, as god and Mister Ford intended.
