Ask Dave

Are Americans More Obsessed With Debt Than Other Cultures?

Joe wants to know why debt is so popular in the United States. Dave gives Joe his take.

Joe in Atlanta is a first-generation immigrant, and he was always taught to stay away from debt. Why is debt so prevalent here in the U.S.? Dave thinks it’s the marketing of debt in the Western world.
