Americans’ wealth pushed further into record territory last year, hitting nearly $100 trillion dollars, thanks to rising stock markets and booming real estate prices. Household net worth—the value of all assets such as stocks and real estate minus liabilities like mortgage and credit-card debt—rose more than $2 trillion dollars last quarter to an all-time record of $98.7 trillion dollars!
