Summary

The 1980s, 1990s and first six years of the 21st Century have been the "good life" for households. The unwanted result which accompanied it is the sea of red ink. Neither households or their sovereigns can now continue living on debt. Confidence in the western way of life will not return until the current mess of a dysfunctional society, and its economy, is cleared out. Household Finance explains why and how this can be done.
