NEW YORK â¿¿ Five years after the financial crisis, households around the world are still playing it safe with their money, too spooked and distrustful to take risks needed to revive a sluggish global economy. An AP analysis of households in the 10 largest economies shows they have pulled hundreds of billions of dollars out of stocks, cut borrowing for the first time in decades and poured money into savings and bonds that offer puny interest payments, often too low to keep up with inflation. It's a flight to safety not seen on such a global scale since World War II, and the implications are huge. Shunning debt and spending less can be good for one family's finances. When hundreds of millions do it together, it can starve the global economy. This is the third installment of "The Great Reset," an AP series exploring major changes wrought by the Great Recession. By Business Writer Bernard Condon.
