Do you believe we need credit to survive? After the events over the last 3-4 years my assumption is that many have been forced to reduce or increase the reliance on credit depending on individual situations.
I am a bit torn on the answer to this question since I totally think it’s possible to not rely on credit to survive. But you need to be creative and good credit is king.
But then you’d have to have quite a bit of luck as you need it to rent or buy a home. Buying a car? Credit check. Car Insurance? Soft hit (minor credit check). Utilities turned on? Credit check. Let’s not forget the almighty credit check for certain jobs.
