The U.S. Economy Can’t Seem to Recover Fast Enough. Can You?


Despite a continuing overseas economic crisis, the U.S. saw a fourth consecutive quarter of economic growth. This good news is tempered by another economic prediction: with stimulus spending on the decline and the economic recovery sputtering, experts are warning of a troubling new pattern—an economic upturn too slow to put Americans back to work and get the nation back in business.

In fact, according to a recent Washington Post article, “growth was below the long-term trend rate at which the U.S. economy expands and is not strong enough to drive down unemployment. And more worrisome, many of the details of the report point to a continued slowdown of expansion this year…. The new numbers -- and the spreading realization that sluggish growth may be a lasting trend rather than a one-quarter phenomenon -- hang over the political world heading into November's midterm elections. The House of Representatives left for its August recess Friday without resolution of policies meant to boost the economy, including legislation to support small-business lending.”

Americans are spending more on goods and services. But in the wake of staggering unemployment, leveling incomes, and staggering debts that linger from pre-recessionary spending, we can’t seem to spend fast enough to help the economy. A weak economy can’t create jobs. And the cycle of tough economic times, low consumer spending, and “too-small-to-help” growth continues.  "The problem is it looks like the consumer was really weakening in June, so you're starting the third quarter in a position of weakness," David Shulman, senior economist at the UCLA Anderson Forecast told The Washington Post. "The components of this report are ugly."

And with the imminent end of certain factors that had helped buttress the U.S. economy over the last year, including boosts from businesses building their inventories, surges from the home-buyer tax credit and the results of federal spending, economy growth is expected to come in the form of “an ongoing sluggish recovery.”

If you feel your own economic recovery is sluggish at best, and you’re continuing to drown in personal or even non-consumer debt, it might be time to take your own financial matters into your own hands and join the millions of people who have already found financial relief in Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy throughout our “Great Recession.” By discharging personal or business debt through bankruptcy you could solve many of your most pressing financial problems—righting your course for a better financial future…just as the country attempts to do the same. This will put you in the right fiscal place at the right time to hit the ground running as the nation tries to right itself, allowing you to start over in a better position than most.

Specifically, a personal bankruptcy through Chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy will automatically stay creditor action and harassment, including those annoying collection letters, phone calls and repossessions; as well as dispense with much, if not all, of your secured and unsecured debt, either via an exchange of collateral, property or other assets, or through a personally-tailored payment plan that you can afford.

The first step is knowing a qualified bankruptcy attorney who can help you regain your power, conquer creditors and face your financial fears, yielding—all with the right kinds of support, information and insights—at a low cost— for a viable and secure future.  The bankruptcy experts at the Law Offices of John T.
