"Bankruptcy" is a popular search topic today after a study showed that the number of Americans aged 65 and older declaring bankruptcy is on the rise. The study conducted by John Pottow, a law professor at the University of Michigan Law School, showed that by 2007, 7% of those filing for bankruptcy were 65 or older, up from 4% in 2001. Professor Pottow said that more than 66% of those 65 and older who filed for bankruptcy blamed credit cards for their financial problems. "They're using credit cards as a maladaptive coping mechanism," Pottow said. The research also showed that about 40% of adults were still struggling with medical bills after they filed for bankruptcy. The chatter on Main Street (a.k.a.

Thus, each day, TheStreet compiles the stories that are trending on Google, and highlights the news that could make stocks move. -- Written by Theresa McCabe in Boston.
