Abstract: In this paper we focus on the geographies of individual and household debt. Rising household debt has become an issue of increased concern across many nations. We consider two important contributing factors to this rise in debt; first, the global rise in financial services and institutions seeking to expand their market share of consumer credit. Second, the dismantling of public welfare provision and the shift towards individualization and personal asset-building.
