# Pragmatically, it can have meaning. 0 can represent a negative of unclear expectations. If you look at your bank balance and it’s 0, but you expected there to be \$1000 in it, you’re not -\$1000 but \$0. However, if you do double-entry, you’ll see the -\$1000 or rather a \$1000 deficit in your budget that shows up as \$0 in your balance. This can be compared to a \$0 where you had no expectations or a \$0 where you had \$500 of expectations. So in that case, if your lifestyle is such that you have “1/2 of 0″, it is because you have simplified your needs so that that \$0 is only 1/2 as bad as it was when you needed more.
