Overall debt crisis for Americans is rising

Updated: May 19

Consumer debt is defined as the amount owed by consumers. It includes debts incurred on purchase of goods that are consumable and/or do not appreciate. In macroeconomic terms, it is debt which is used to fund consumption rather than investment.

According to Jessica Dickler at CNBC: “Americans are diving deeper and deeper into the red. As of 2019, outstanding consumer debt exceeded $4 trillion for the first time, according to the Federal Reserve.”

It does not stop there. How about student loan debt? The student loan crisis in this country has become way too serious to ignore. It is not uncommon to have a conversation with a recent graduate of a major chiropractic institution, and realize they are over $250,000 in debt for their education! Some financial experts say these loans are “lifetime loans,” meaning these recent graduates will pay on these loans for their entire life? According to the Federal Reserve, right now, the total amount of student loan debt in the U.S. is coming in at over $1.6 trillion.


And finally, let’s take a look at the national debt. In 2019, the U.S. national debt reached a new milestone of $22 trillion. According to Frank Miles at Fox News: “The Treasury Department’s daily statement showed that total outstanding public debt stands at $22.01 trillion. It stood at $19.95 trillion in 2017.” Debt has become a “way of life” for consumers and our government. But, is it healthy for the short-term and the long-term?


Time will tell...


What if you could own an online, personal comprehensive financial management tool that pulls all of your financial accounts into one central location and uses advanced financial strategies to create the most effective, tailor-fitted strategy to help you achieve your goals of freedom from debt?


It's called The Money Max Account and many people have compared it to a GPS device in your car or on your phone. See, a GPS calculates where you are and then plots out the fastest, most efficient route to your destination. If the GPS doesn't understand where you are, it can't give you instructions on how to get to your destination. Therefore, the instructions the GPS gives you must be specific to you; they must be personalized.


In order to be effective, the GPS must also be dynamic, meaning it has to adjust to changes that might happen. Say you veer off course… the GPS will immediately recalculate and make immediate changes to get you back on course… it will give you new instructions on how to get to your ultimate destination.


With The Money Max Account, you are always in control of your money.
