One Nation Under Debt

Abstract

Four out of five Americans believe consumer debt is a problem. But some observers argue that the debt burden largely reflects the rise in housing prices. Christian Weller and Derek Douglas take a closer look at trends in borrowing by individuals. They argue that borrowing has been driven by higher costs, not investment in housing. People are worried for a good reason.
