Another 22% of respondents said they would have to make significant lifestyle changes if asked to live on cash only. “Many people have built a lifestyle their income won't support and rely on credit to supplement their income," said Gail Cunningham, spokeswoman for the NFCC, in an email. "This is a recipe for disaster, as the party has to end at some point, and when that day comes, it will arrive in the form of an unmanageable debt load." (Bankrate.com)

    The world’s largest bond mutual fund, Pimco Total Return Fund suffered its 16th month of outflows.  Investors pulled $3.9 billion from the fund in August, which brings the Total Return Fund's net cash withdrawals to almost $70 billion since May 2013.  The run on the fund has come as returns have suffered.   Outflows can bring even more poor performance to those investors who remain.
