BIS - Household Debt and Financial Stability

I get a monthly email update from the Bank for International Settlements (pasted in below). This month it included a short video on the topic - Household debt and financial stability. It's mostly just some common sense analysis, but I did note that BIS felt the issue was important enough to do this brief video on it. See just below.
