"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others.

Yesterday I spoke of personal debt. To add to that, consider these:
More than 160 million Americans have credit cards.
The average credit card holder has at least three cards.
On average, each household with a credit card carries more than $15,000 in credit card debt.
Total U.S. consumer debt is at $11.4 trillion. That includes mortgages, auto loans, credit cards and student loans.
