Everybody is doing it.  What could possibly be wrong with that?

There are a lot of things that “everyone is doing” that just seem wrong.

Number 1

The Christian Science Monitor reports stats by the EBRI that show that only half of American households could come up with $2,000 cash in a pinch.

Number 2

They also say that 57 percent of Americans report having less than $25,000 in household savings and investments (excluding their home and pension benefits).

Number 3

College graduates in 2012 owed an average of $28,720 in student loans.  And 53% of them are either unemployed or unable to find full-time employment.  They also believe that they really need a graduate level degree (aka. more loans) to be more competitive.

Number 4

The Huffington Post shares a PNC Bank report that says that the average debt burden of twenty-somethings is $45,000.

 

So when we see what most people are doing, we should probably head the other way.
