You are joking?
The UK is apparently £1,000,000,000,000 in debt. Banks have been done for selling people mortgages they cannot afford - 110% over 50 years, interest rates have gone up constantly over the last 2 years and a lot of people now cannot afford their debts. IVA companies have sprung up out of the woodwork and credit companies are losing millions in bad debt.
I think if you take the average of all debt/assets in the UK, credit companies effectively own everything. People here live their lifestyles on borrowed money.
