    No, but I'll buy you dinner if you're ever up here or if we make it back to a fitness summit in the future:tongue

    "Mean household wealth." So that's the average of me, Bill Gates, and a homeless guy?

    They do seem to use averages, which is curious. Median with standard deviations might be more valuable. They also include the value of real estate holdings--I thought that most measurements of wealth assessed "investible" holdings and tended not to include real estate.

    As I read it over the past few years, Canada avoided the big bank busts, largely by better regulation. No liar loans, other (substandard?) loans under control and this figure is largely related to realestate.

    Note: regulating banks is not a conservative/liberal thing.
