Symptoms vs. problem

Dave Ramsey reminds people that their debts are a symptom of problem – not the problem itself.  I.e. you are in debt because you failed to plan and come up with an alternative.  The problem is the lack of planning, not the result of the lack of planning.  I had a discussion today with a guy starting a company focused on root cause analysis in the technology space, so I thought it was worthwhile to look at it.
