    The economy is only doing well if you are in the top 10%. For everybody else, not so much.

    because people do not know how to save and we live in an instant gratification society. 75 to 80 percent of the country lives paycheck to paycheck, no matter how the economy is doing.

    It's doing great.

    Some people spend well beyond their means, and save nothing. They are unprepared for emergencies.

    Most people believe they need an iphoneX, have to drive a Mercedes, own a 2500 sq foot house, have a 60 inch flat screen with the full cable channel package plus complete Netfix and the ultimate speed internet, then to top it all off eat out every night. Housekeeper and Gardner are almost optional.

    On top of that as gg pointed out so many are into instant gratification. Must have the newest and greatest NOW.
