Deadbeat Nation: 37 Million Credit Card Accounts In The U.S. Are "Seriously Delinquent"

• https://www.prisonplanet.com, Michael Snyder

If the latest numbers on delinquent credit card accounts are any indication, that appears to be precisely what is happening.  As I noted the other day, Americans currently have 480 million credit cards, and they are carrying 870 billion dollars worth of balances on those cards.  That is one giant pile of debt, but there won't be a problem as long as the vast majority of Americans regularly make their credit card payments.  Unfortunately, the number of credit card accounts that are delinquent has been steadily rising, and now we are being told that the number of "seriously delinquent" accounts has shot up to 37 million

At the end of 2018, Americans struggled to make payments on the country's $870 billion worth of credit card debt.
