TalkBack; Are You Moving into Negative Savings Territory? T-YOU


We want to gauge your feelings on issues in the news. Our question this week: A recent study said Americans are saving less than ever before -- some are even in negative territory. How much are you saving these days? Head to Jacksonville.com, keyword: T-You, to register your thoughts.

a. Savings? Not with rising insurance premiums, college tuitions and $40-a-tank gas prices.

b. I put money in my 401(k), but not as much as I should.

c. I save what I can, which is usually the equivalent of the amount of change I can find in the couch cusions.

9 percent (19 votes): The Super Bowl was the best thing to happen to the city since they got rid of the stinky paper mills.

Here's what some of you had to say on the subject:

-- The economic impact of the Super Bowl will be felt for years to come, even long after the fans left town. It's sad to see so many naysayers are still living in Jacksonville. [They are] the same [people] that have good jobs in our growing, vibrant economy. If their employer [left] town, they'd sure get behind economic development then, finally!

-- The NFL played Jacksonville like a violin. They used our inferiority complex against us and we end up paying millions of dollars for their party. …
