Happy Households

In a sign that household deleveraging may be over, outstanding household debt grew by $127 billion in Q3 and now stands at $11.28 trillion. While down 11% from the peak of $12.7 trillion set in 2008, after essentially 20 straight quarters of deleveraging, this is great news. Mortgage debt rose by $56 billion, credit card debt by $4 billion, auto loans by $31 billion and student loans by $33 billion.
