The Certified Financial Planning Board of Standards conducted a survey in early July with a statistically representative sample of more than 1000 households and found:
· 66% believe the economy will hold steady or improve over the next 6 months
· 83% believe their own personal finances will get better or at least hold their own
· most consumers are hoping for gradual improvements in home sales and real estate as well as other major sectors of the economy
Their report also discusses the use of financial planners and it has stayed relatively stable for the last two years.
