I continue to monitor this and it is really becoming a major problem. I could see a recession in 6 months.

Not pleased that we are seeing the credit card debt soaring at the rate it is! Sure don't want another 2008 meltdown!

It's difficult to understand why average credit card rates have been steadily rising over this 10 year low interest rate cycle. What happens to people with high credit card debt when rates rise?

I read today that in Dec. '18, the U.S. consumer credit card debt hit over $870 billion, which is the highest total ever! Be careful out there, this growing economy won't last forever.
