Eight out of 10 adults in the U.S. are in debt.
The average debt, excluding mortgages, was $38,000 in 2021.
Americans used an average of 10% of our disposable income to pay off debt from 2012 to 2020.
That dropped to 8% in the first quarter of 2021.
Now the downward trend is reversing.
By the end of 2021, Americans used 9.34% of our disposable income to pay debt … and I think that will grow in 2022 with soaring inflation and rising interest rates.
