Did you guys even READ this before posting it up. A 2005 study of 2001 numbers that narrow 54% down to 17% if you don't take some of the studies findings...
In 2001 the number one reason for the 1.45M BK was the dot.com burst and and it's fallout. The 2008 number, up 25% from 2007 is right behind 2001 and the primary cause, according to the Bankruptcy Lawyers Association is MEDICAL. The number is expected to go up 33% or higher than 2008 this year. So the 1 every 30 seconds MIGHT be on target.
But if we use the debunking number, and assume it completely we can correct that to 1 every 3.5 minutes derived directly from HEALTH [or Helath] Costs. I am positive that makes you feel much better about everything.
Focus on the issues. THEY are the things that will define the quality of life for your kids and grandkids.
Telepromptors and study variances are not the issues.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
