Household spending and debt .: FB12-7/14-2012E-PDF

"Household spending accounts for close to 65 per cent of total spending in Canada and is, therefore, a very important driver of the economy. Households purchase a variety of goods (e.g., food, clothing, houses, cars) and services (e.g., insurance, entertainment). They pay for these goods and services using earnings from employment, savings and income from investments, and borrowed funds, particularly for purchases of big-ticket items such as houses and cars"--p. [1].
