What is the best way to motivate Americans to save, invest, and prepare for their financial future? Some experts suggest using a carrot. Others suggest using a stick. And still others suggest using a combination of carrot and stick. As for me, I suggest the use of statistics. Consider just a sample of the numbers that were recently released.
It is estimated that about 150 million Americans are saving little or nothing for retirement and more than one-third of adults admit to sometimes or often spending more than they can afford.
In 2005 the average savings rate for an American household was -0.5%, something that has not happened since the Great Depression. In 2006, this number dropped even further to -1.0%.
In 2007, the U.S. foreclosure Market Report reported foreclosure filings on 1,285,873 properties, up 75% from 2006.
Fewer than 30% of young Americans are given the opportunity to have any kind of personal finance education even in high school.
Finally, about half of adults are concerned they have not paid enough attention to managing their finances as they should have and that they do not know enough about financial planning.
Now is your chance. With everything happening in the economy, you need to have a personal financial plan. Such a plan for your personal finances will help you navigate the roads of your life.
