Analysis | This chart is the best explanation of middle-class finances you will ever see

Lead author Oren Cass distills it as follows: “In 1985, the typical male worker could cover a family of four’s major expenditures (housing, health care, transportation, education) on 30 weeks of salary,” he wrote on Twitter last week. “By 2018 it took 53 weeks. Which is a problem, there being 52 weeks in a year.”

Professor Elizabeth Warren, who taught bankruptcy law at Harvard, explained this in her 2004 book, The Two Income Trap.

This 2019 study, from the conservative Manhattan Institute, shows it has only gotten worse.

The Education of Elizabeth Warren

Sen Elizabeth Warren is perhaps the leading academic expert on bankruptcy in the country. Here's an article in the New York Times about what she learned when she set out to study bankruptcy. https://nyti.ms/2U0VTW8

That Offer to Make You Debt-Free? It Can Make You Worse Off

I've wondered how the debt settlement outfits know who to target with their misleading advertising. Today's Wall Street Journal lays it out.

It's illegal for credit bureaus to sell your prive information--except to companies you already have accounts with, companies you are applying to, or companies making a "firm offer of credit."

Turns out these scammers mail out loan offers, but then turn you down when you call: and tell you instead how they have a great program of debt settlement.

Of course the debt settlement program rarely work, because the big credit cards end up suing you, while you are settling with the little ones.

A spokesman for the debt settlement trade association, say for most people who sign up for debt settlement, “The only real alternative many of these consumers have to debt-settlement is bankruptcy.”

For most people, bankruptcy works.

Debt-settlement firms powered by the credit-reporting industry seek out struggling consumers to sell them plans that can leave them with high fees, damaged credit and a tax bill.

These internet pay day loans hide behind Indian tribes to dodge Virginia law.

In case you need another reason to give us a majority - I have been fighting the predatory lending industry for eight years. Predatory lenders now work with Native American Tribes to use tribal sovereignty and the internet to lock people in to 400%+ interest loans. After passing the Senate in 2018, the industry hired lobbyists and killed it in both chambers last year. Virginia Poverty Law Center Jay Speer

After bankruptcy, be sure to get a couple credit cards.

I'm doing a survey of people who filed bankruptcy with me a few years ago. About half of them are telling me their score is 670 or higher, which is what Experian calls "good."

That's a lot better than most people expect--many people have heard that you go for seven years with bad credit--but it's less than what it should be.

The problem may be that about two out of five people did NOT go out right away and get a couple new credit cards.

After bankruptcy, it's important to build a new credit history. Your old, bad credit is frozen, although not wiped away. But you need to build good credit on top of it.

People get several credit card offers in the mail. And you can search on the internet for "credit cards for bad credit."

Charge something like gasoline every month, and pay it off every month. If you can do that, in three years your score should be well above 700.

Some people never want to see a credit card again. That's understandable, but it's not good strategy. If you want to be able to get a car loan at a good interest rate in a few years. you've gotta build a new credit history.

Get a couple cards. Charge something every month. Pay them off every month. Get back to good credit. Make the most of your new start.

Mick Mulvaney’s Master Class in Destroying a Bureaucracy From Within

As a bankruptcy lawyer, I see a lot of people who get trapped into payday loans at impossible interest rates. Here's an interesting article on how the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau, under Pres Obama, tried to stop that; And how the CFPB backed off under the new administration.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/16/magazine/consumer-financial-protection-bureau-trump.html

The C.F.P.B. was created to protect Americans from predatory lenders after the financial crisis. President Trump’s new chief of staff took it apart on his way to White House.
