Economic Downgrade

by Admin 9th August 2011 11:00

This summer's big economic news was without a doubt the downgrading of the US's AAA rating by Standard & Poors. 

 

 

Ramifications were felt across the world financial markets.  To find out how we felt this might impact us here in the UK we asked one simple question.

 Following the downgrading of the US ecomony from AAA, how confident are you about your financial future?

The headline figure is that 53% of us here in the UK are now less confident about our own financial future as a result of the US downgrade.

However, this masks a major difference along gender lines - 40% of males and 50% of females are less confident.  Only time will tell who is right.
