    Should Personal Debts Be Restricted?
    Most of us have borrowed money for some reason or the other. There’s nothing wrong with debts as such because it helps in economic growth.

But now the Obama retirement savings schemes seem to have made it easy for us to save up something for that period when we’ll not be earning anymore. According to the Bloomberg report , the President on  radio coverage says that the savings of the nation is “essentially zero”. He says, “We cannot continue on this course. And we certainly cannot go back to an economy based on inflated profits and maxed-out credit cards.” Its rather alarming to know that 78 million Americans that constitutes half the work force don’t plan for retirement!
