Effects of current economic problems go well beyond cash-flow issues

Dear Editor,

If we now try to define the root of the current economic problems, we need to go back to its genius. The nub of the problem happened when Americans took a cocktail of debt with a chaser of pathological optimism, and many got drunk on both. Awash in credit offers they bought homes, cars, and lots of other stuff they couldn’t afford or need, and hoped for a best-case scenario, in which their home values and rising salaries would take care of it. We could never sustain a strong economy on over 70 percent consumer spending!
