Going further into debt is not a sign of economic wellness. It's a sign of denying reality. I've cut my spending way back. Do people not understand that their debt will have to be paid either by themselves at Insane interest or by the collapse of companies or the lenders. Warnings of recession at this time should mean an austerity mindset not piling on debt.
