So, you poll would include a car, and student loans right? Or are you just looking for CC debt?

I borrowed $50 from my dad in 1968 for gas money to get to a job, and that's the last time I was in debt. You have no idea what a wonderful feeling that has been all my life.

Well, not counting the house I have no debt, but to me the economy is bad because I can't sell my house without losing a ton of actual money (not just on paper as some always say) that we put down on it, and is now probably all gone. I need to move to find a job, but I'm stuck here for awhile.

The economy can be bad without all individuals being in debt.

You missed the best part down at the bottom. Per capita Unfunded Liabilities 192,000. And then you have to multiply it by about three, to get the per household figure---over a half a million per family budget, that has been promised, and will have to be either paid or defaulted. Credit card debt alone is around $10,000 per household. To see what people bought with that 10K, check out any garage sale.

Including myself, I know 3 people who lost their job due to the economy. As far as debt goes, I owe about $1,500 bucks to my CC, other than that none.
