Breaking the Paycheck to Paycheck Cycle

We all now that tens of millions of Americans are living each day of their lives from paycheck to paycheck. But scratch a little below the surface and you will find some staggering statistics. Here’s a few examples:

– Nearly 40% of Americans have less than $500 in liquid savings…

– Approximately 132.1 million Americans (nearly 50% of the population) report that they do not have enough money in liquid savings to financially survive three months without their current paycheck…

– The average Baby Boomer will have an income of $190 per month during retirement…

Depressing, huh?

Well, these are facts and America will soon be living with the consequences.

In Segment One, Jerry and Jennifer discuss this explosive issue and try to provide some hope.

Other topics in Segment One include:

– The crushing reality of America’s student loan debt
– A brief update on the crumbling Petrodollar system
– Shocking new data just released by the Congressional Budget Office about the future of Social Security
