    Question: Didn’t Francis Cianfrocca mention awhile ago that because of the Feds monetary policy that there was no positive reason for personal savings and that the government was actually fully supporting the banks and finance industry and personal savings and financial fiduciary responsibility for individuals was of no government importance? So when he says that people are still living beyond their means… do the people already realize that it doesn’t matter anyway. They are not being supported or encouraged to be more responsible?
