4Q 2016 Household Debt and Credit Report: $12.58 trillion.

Debt is a liquidity vacuum.  Massive debt, and its associated monthly debt service obligations, is an economy killer.

The U.S. economy is barely crawling, and prospects for a meaningful, sustainable turnaround are presently bleak.

Now… imagine the raw economy-boosting power of eliminating 40%, 50%, or possibly 60% of the $8.95 trillion housing debt in the U.S..

At $8.95 trillion, 4.0%, 20 year maturity, housing debt service for U.S. households is running at approximately $54.2 billion per month.

Eliminating 50% of the housing debt balance from U.S. Household Debt would erase approximately $27.1 billion in debt service per month… every month… for the next 20 years.

And that $27.1 billion, ladies and gentlemen, is fresh, new liquidity that would be walking the streets of America every month for the next 20 years.

And that is how you revitalize an economy and generate raw economic power.
