Most Americans Can’t Afford A $500 Emergency
Megan Reynolds

So what really gets my goat are the bank ads I see where they advocate taking out loans to cover completely unnecessary and frivolous expenses. “Can’t afford the holiday gift extravaganza of your dreams? No problem! Take out a loan from Bank A!” or “Can’t afford a vacation this year? Take our our personal loan and pay twice as much for it over time!”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
