Personal savings: Then vs. now
Personal savings rate in the US

The personal savings rate has been on the decline for the past 30 years, according to statistics from the Bureau of Economic Analysis. Americans are currently saving roughly 4 cents on the dollar of disposable income. That's less than half of what they were saving in the 1970s and 1980s.
