It all adds up? You don’t want to be AVERAGE

But what does it add up to? Well, in many cases of “average” Americans it adds up to not saving for the future. The average American has less than $1,000 in savings and $34 in their pocket. But why? The easy answer is they have insufficient income, the actual answer may be on the other side.

  1. The facts presented here are further reminders that those living in the U.S. are economically in the top 2 or 3 per cent of all human beings who have ever lived. (Ok, I discount extra-terrestrials, should there be any.)
    And yet….
    Our most difficult problems are not economic or material. In thinking they are, we ignore the wisdom of those who came before us who were poor by our material stadards, but wealthy in the most important things.
