I don't know why they call it household assets. Nobody I know has an asset, other than a house with a mortgage, and an old car that needs repairs.

In my area, there has been an explosion of second-hand selling at flea markets and yard sales, as people try to get cash for their belongings in order to pay bills. Other people, who can't find jobs, have turned to vending whatever new junk they can get their hands on, from wholesale candy to out of date canned food. The corporations have impoverished the country and, what is quite depressing, is that with all the stuff for sale, the average person is still having trouble buying a lousy item for fifty cents.
