What Will Affect Americans’ Personal Finances Most in 2018?
In the MoneyLion survey, Americans were asked to explain why they believe their finances will improve, stay the same or be worse off in 2018 compared to 2017.
Those who believe they will be better off financially said it's because they will be making more money, managing their money better, saving money or relocating and starting a new job, among other reasons.
Meanwhile, some respondents who believe their finances will be the same said it's because their expenses and income are not changing this year. And those who believe they will be worse off said they have too much debt, their expenses increased or they experienced a job loss, among other reasons.
