If you are in a circumstance where you need to borrow money this month to repay your debt
from last month, then, generally, you are on the fast track to bankruptcy court or a congressional
investigation, perhaps both, depending on the size of debt snowball you are able to build.
In the first case, you borrow money to leverage equity and there is a reasonable chance that
by the time you pay off the loan, the value of what you built exceeds the amount borrowed.
In the second case, you end up in a lather-rinse-repeat process where your debt load continues
to grow and grow until it overpowers you.
It's a good analogy, but, the second form of borrowing is far worse than the first.
