From the NY Times website:
Net Worth of Families Down Sharply
Family net worth had hit an all-time high of $64.36 trillion in the April-June quarter of 2007 but has fallen in every quarter since that time.
The record 9 percent drop in the fourth quarter pushed total net worth down to $51.48 trillion, a level that is 20 percent below the third quarter 2007 peak.
Wow. If you estimate the population of the US at around 305 million, it's a drop from about $211,000 per person to $169,000 per person, a drop of $42,000 each. I can't say I'm proud of having done more than my share of the losing!
