Option A is a scheme where customers can pay for the bike in monthly

Lokesh wants to buy a Vespa motorcycle to be able to get to work easily, as well as indulge in leisurely road trips. His local retailer sells the model he likes for £3000. However he doesnt have the money to pay upfront so is looking at different financing options.

        Option A is a scheme where customers can pay for the bike in monthly instalments over three years, at a fixed APR of 18%.

        Option B is for Lokesh to use a combination of savings and a credit card loan. This would use up all of his savings of £2000, currently in a savings account, and the credit card would pay for the remainder. The APR on his credit card is 26%. He would repay £25 monthly.

Read the two sentences below, from an analysis of trends in household debt published at the end of 2017.

Debt lets households smooth shocks and invest in high-return assets such as housing or education, raising average consumption over their lifetimes. However, high household debt can make the economy more vulnerable to disruptions, potentially harming growth.

(Zabai, 2017, p.39)
