    Trends With Few Wins 

    There are fewer payroll jobs in the United States right now than there were back in 2000 even though we have added 30 million extra people to the population since then.
    Back in 1969, 95 percent of all men between the ages of 25 and 54 had a job. In July, only 81.2 percent of men in that age group had a job.
    Only 55.3% of all Americans between the ages of 18 and 29 were employed last year. That was the lowest level that we have seen since World War II.
    The economic downturn has been particularly tough on men. According to Census data, men are twice as likely to live with their parents as women are.
    According to one recent survey, only 14 percent of all Americans that are 28 or 29 years old are optimistic about their financial futures.
    According to one study, between 1969 and 2009 the median wages earned by American men between the ages of 30 and 50 dropped by 27 percent after you account for inflation.
    U.S. home values have fallen approximately 6 trillion dollars since the housing crisis first began

    Consumer Credit Chart 

    Derek Kravitz, AP Economics Writer, On Thursday September 8, 2011, 3:26 pm
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans borrowed more money in July than any other month in more than three years. But they cut back on using their credit cards.

    Consumer borrowing rose nearly $12 billion in July, the Federal Reserve said Thursday. Greater demand for school and auto loans fueled the increase. A category that measures credit card use fell in July after large increases in May and June.

    Total consumer borrowing increased to a seasonally adjusted annual level of $2.45 trillion. That’s barely 2 percent above the four-year low reached in September.
