It is important to note that Resources is not just liquid money. It is your current income which sustains your "way of life". Resources only becomes liquid money if you sell off all your assets and turn it into cash. It covers your bills, car payments, day-to-day purchases, house payments and any equipment purchases you wish to make according to the following list based on your dots in Resources or less. All characters can acquire items at a level less than or equal to their Resources. Anything at a higher cost can be acquired by sacrificing a dot of Resources per dot above what they currently possess. Naturally this does not cover everything; vehicles, property, business, etc. cannot be broken down into simple purchases and require more financial dealings in-game, but in general, your Resources also accounts for a certain degree of possession regarding those matters as well.

Also, if you acquire a cash reward during the course of the game, the amount of that reward is given to you as a Temporary Resources Equipment equal to the rating that the cash reward measures up to in liquid assets according to the Core Book. You may then use this Temporary Resources to purchase something at or below its rating and it also decreases by 1. This continues until you have expended the entire amount. It is also possible to use this Temporary Resources on investments in order to attempt an increase of your Resources Background.
