Amid all of the bad news - here is a bright spot!
Today's Wall Street Journal noted that household wealth in American households has advanced by 3.9%
No instant millionaires, but listen to this "For the first time in nearly two years, American households grew a little wealthier in the second quarter..." Sure, we still have a way to go ... but Americans are once again, rising to the challenge!
"Advances in stocks and home prices drove the gain, the Federal Reserve said in a report Thursday,. In response to the recession, families also saved more and borrowed less, shedding some of the debt owed on their homes and their credit cards"
"Home prices also started rising for the first time since 2006. The Fed said the value of real estate holdings rose 1.8% during the second quarter. Prices are now edging higher in most regions of the US, a trend that - along with continuing gains in stocks - points to higher household wealth in the third quarter"
"Americans cut their borrowing and spending to help pay down debt"
I raise my glass to my country. Americans have always been know to "rise to the occasion" and to beat all odds. We will do it again...
