I found the issue of personal savings in the U.S. a strange topic for the IEEE to be addressing. I also find it stupid that alarms are sounded all the time about savings rates, while the government has been taxing the interest earned on savings for the last umpteen years. :roll:

This should be addressed to the US Government!! We now have a collective credit card balance of:
$8,398,706,863,427.55 (at the time of this post - it is updated every second) and increasing at a rate of $2.44 BILLION per day!!

If the Government is in debt up to its eyeballs and that is OK, why shouldn't it be OK for the average citizen as well? :roll:
