Are Renters Bad With Money?

The Motley Fool
A new study about America's credit card debt from policy research and advocacy groups Demos, the Center for Responsible Lending, and the AARP shows that the most debt-troubled consumers are those who don't own their homes, even though their credit card balances are lower than those who are their own landlords ($6,880 vs. $10,296).
The fact that renters have a hard time dealing with debt than homeowners could be attributed to their having less disposable income -- a fact borne out in the survey results.
