America’s debt to income ratio as compared with other countries. We are all feeling the crunch of the economy and receiving the news of businesses folding, cutting back on spending, hiring freezes, crazy bonuses, government bailouts, and complete countries going bankrupt but how much of this is the reality of the state of our economy as a whole and how much is an excuse to clean house.
