As far as finance is concerned, bankruptcy is probably the lowest point in a company or an individual’s life. The dictionary defines bankruptcy as such, n. the state of being completely lacking in a particular quality or value. I’m not going to talk about declaring bankruptcy in financial terms, though. 🙂 There’s a popular term that’s being thrown around lately called “email bankruptcy”. This is usually done by someone who has accumulated (and slacked over) a lot of emails and has failed to respond to many of them.
