Australia has the world’s highest household debt per Gross Domestic Product ratio, preceding the United States.
The country holds about 2 trillion dollars in unconsolidated household debt and 1.6 trillion dollars of debt in GDP. Over the past 30 years, household debt per inhabitant has dramatically increased and puts our country at risk.
In Australia, private debt refers in majority to mortgages and credit card debts.
Public policies over the past 20 years have enticed citizens to take on loans rather than save their incomes. In addition, general inflation and increase of housing prices caused many Australians to be tens of thousands of dollars in debt.

Data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics indicates an increase in loans held by young people to afford their first home over the last 10 years, despite little salary growth over that same period of time. The value of their credits now reach 330,700 dollars, approximately 50% more than in 2006.
