U.S. Lives High on the Hog, And High on the Cuff, Too NEW YORK (UP) -- Americans are livipg high on the hog, and high on the cuff, too. Among ijp, we ow'e 43 billion dollars, nearly three bllCon more than last year. But even as we sign I.O.U.'s, we salt away cash- Our savings this year add up to well over 800 'bil- Ijoh dollars. Installment credit outstanding accounts for about 33 billion dollars of the tdtalpersonal debt. O£ this, commercial banks have 12 billion, 300 million dollars; sales finance companies (automobiles, appliances) have loaned nine billion 300.million dollars; small loan companies, or consumer finance . companies, have around 3.2 billion dollars this year, according to the Nationil Consumer Finance Association. The 10,745 small loan offices around the nation, operated by 1,500 firms, claim one out of every six families for a customer and they look for a 12 to 14 per cent growth in volqme next year. - Is there danger in this rising installment credit spiral? Many economists bejieve it !s do- 1pg no harm since nobody will con- tjhue to extend new credits if repayments do not -come in on sc^edr Vie. Why, do we borrow? · About one-third of tl)e 16 million loans made by small loan companies this year are for debt consolidation, where the customer . borrows to pay off a flock o^ bills and Is left with one debt. Medical and dental expenses account for 11 per cent of the small loans; 8 per cent gees for car purchases and upkeep. Clothing accounts for 6 per cent of the loans, as does travel and vacations. Many people borrow to buy things even though they have the cash. They feel they'll never save the money again once they touch their savings, 60 they take out a loan. Installment credit also is rising has a s;,000 celling, the nation's highest. Only California, New Jersey, New York, Virginia and Wisconsin have as low an interest rate as 2% per cent a month oh the first seginent of the loan, gener because we'r« urged to use credit'ally the $100 to $150 portion. Fif- for just about everything. Under- teen states call for a 3 per cent rate a month on that fjrst bite. The small loan industry is try- takers now have plans for prepaid funerals. They call it, "Pay now, go later." · About 40 states have small loan laws.
