Ashton kutcher reaches out to young Americans and tries to help them solve the debt problem. Not just a small debt, but the overwhelming amount that plagues so many people, especially after paying for their college education. Kutcher is one of the producers of a show on Crackle called “Going From Broke.” Season two is available to stream for free now. Here’s the trailer for the show’s first season.
In a recent interview with Entrepreneur.com, Kutcher says that like most people his age, he’s never learned what he likes to call financial literacy. The basics. How to spend, how to save and how to properly manage your debt. Kutcher goes on to say that “If I hadn’t had extraordinary luck, I would probably be in the same situation as a lot of these people.”
This situation is debt. Huge debts. US consumer debt stands at $ 14.9 trillion, with the average household having over $ 5,000 in debt. The program “Going From Broke” presents financial interventions with young people struggling with significant debts. The purpose of the show is to get people to understand and respect personal finance issues.
Kutcher says Entrepreneur that money is basically like a drug, and that there is a lot of ego related to wealth and material things. He says, “You have to let go of your ego and your personal identity tied to money and materialism. It is a very difficult thing to do.”
Season 2 of “Going From Broke” is available now on Crackle.
