The Economy Keeps Chugging – Do You Feel Better Off?

December 11, 2019

This seems to be an unappreciated economic upturn. For over 10 years, our economy has continued to grow, our unemployment declined to new lows, yet according to a recent Gallup poll, Americans’ worry about their finances.

Much like the little engine that could saying, “I think I can,” as the economy slowly grew, many on board didn’t feel it. The Gallup poll says 40% are barely making ends meet or building debt. Interestingly, this sentiment is greater for those employed. Anxiety over paying for healthcare, children’s education and rent/mortgage are still at the forefront for the consumer. They don’t feel the improved economy has impacted them but rather the wealthy.
