Maxed Out: Debt and Financial Insecurity

Maxed Out: Hard Times, Easy Credit and the Era of Predatory Lenders is a documenatary film which seeks to raise awareness on how credit and lending issues are affecting American society.   While it is targeted for Americans,  it could very well be telling our own story.  We as a nation and as individuals are also over our heads in debt.  Affluenza has led to an addiction to debt.

It’s a movie you can’t afford to miss.  Watch it here for free (albeit in low quality).   Share the link with your children,  your family and your friends.  Hopefully, it will make them think twice about spending money that they don’t have.    When it comes to credit,  it pays to be informed.

  2. It is interesting that our underlying insecurities drive our spending and when we feel low we often shop to feel better but then shopping leads to more debt.

    It is almost a never ending cycle. Certainly one that I blog about often.
