Australians Lead World in Personal Debt
By Administrator 17 February, 2015
Recent reports show that Australians are world leaders in personal debt. The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) states that in Australia the main contributors to personal debt are household debt (mainly mortgages), credit cards and loans – totalling over $1 trillion AUD.
The latest RBA numbers, released in December last year, show that although personal debt cases are slowly decreasing, Australians continue to borrow strongly for housing and business – both of which can have a heavy impact on personal debt.
With Australian legislation designed to assist first-time home buyers and overall low interest rates, many Australians are currently living beyond their means. Personal debt can be manageable in small amounts, but it can become overwhelming if you are not able to make your repayments as they fall due.
