As your signature handily points out, economics is blurring with astrophysics in terms of magnitude. I bet I see a googol in circulation in my lifetime.

What`s more frightening is.........

It took 600 years of banking history for household debt to reach half a trillion pounds. Now, under ten years of Labour, this has more than doubled to £1,325,000,000,000.00 .

It has been nearly 2000 years since Jesus Christ threw the vile money lenders out of the temple. Another way of looking at how big a number £1.3 trillion is if you paid a money lender £20 each and every second ever since Jesus walked the Earth, you still would not have surpassed £1.3 trillion to this current day. Maybe this thread should be full of ideas of how to convey to the average person the full scale of our private debt problem

Yep, that's another thing I should've added. It's insane.

And further, it is predicted by 2010 the end of this decade, that one million souls will have filed for Bankruptcy.

I would hazard a bold statement that most of that increase in debt has come after 9/11. If there were indeed 19 Arab hijackers on 9/11, then I doubt they would have guessed in their wildest dreams what financial effect their actions on that day would have on the world. If the current monetary climate was a planned response to 9/11 to stave off a recession, then the "War on Terror" has already been lost and lost badly. The price of failure in war is economic collapse

A mate and I were discussing this many months ago, and in our position you could say Osama 0:mortgage and debt free OOs 2. :)
