Exclamation Americans are getting into more debt

Here is an interesting read for all of you believing the government propaganda about recession being over:

US consumer spending rose 0.4% in June, while incomes took a 1.3% dive the same month. So do the math:

Spending Up + Incomes Down = More Debt

While Americans are saving (savings rate up to 3% lately), Canadians are getting deeper into debt and are not saving at all. This sure will end well...
