I believe they were forced. Through brainwashing.......very effective advertising.
However, most of the people I know in debt don't have 3 BMW's. They are just trying to survive.
Do You have a Credit Card?
Then you are equally at fault for the Economy.

I want to paint a picture for you. I want to paint a conservative estimate of 100 million americans alone, each with 3 credit cards with an 8k maximum credit. Each of those cards is maxed, and the owners are merely shuffling the balance between the three and letting the interest grow. Do the math, that is 8,000,000,000 or 8 Billion in essentially stolen cash.
middle class people were the only people that could afford payments on those types of things. that's because they had jobs that paid middle class wages.
