You're right, I forgot. The new catch phrase is 'FORWARD'

"Fast Forward"...past any consideration of performance to date. Kinda like a "do-over" or a cold reboot.

I think your misunderstanding the article... The private debt has been shifting downward, this has been happening at the expense of public debt and consumer behavior. The more specific reason this is happening is two fold, 1) People pulling money out of markets, not taking on as much debt in the form of loans for purchases and new business and 2) the government keeping interest rates artificially low as ideliver pointed out, this pulls burden from the private (consumer) sector into the public.

Both of which is exactly what we could expect to happen after any recession.

^ yep... it also indicates that consumers are consuming less, which is a bad thing when it comes to growth and stability.

Think about it this way, I eat when I sell something. You eat when you sell something. If I don't buy yours and you don't buy mine, neither of us eat.

Economics in a nutshell. Another good example, watch the South park comparing the economy and now to Rome and Jesus... Hilarious and so true!
