i guess that i'm somewhat confident. i don't think that the economy is going to crash and burn like some think though. i have faith - seeing as how people really do spend money on frivolous things - it's got to help some how ...

I'm worried about losing my government job this year due to budget cuts, and there aren't a ton of jobs out there in the private sector in my field to begin with. My plan is to spend as little as possible this year, except for paying down debt.

I'm a little scared because this Fall I will be going to Law School and won't be earning any money for a few years. This means I will be dependent on my parents again and I hate being a burden and worrying about finances. I've saved up a lot this past year, but most of that is in retirement accounts so I don't have the most cash on hand.

I still have faith that the economy can rebound. I know it's not in the best state right now, but I hope that we do not go into a recession.

I do believe we are in recession right now, but I'm not stressing really. It doesn't affect my spending, but it is preventing me from making any major lifestyle changes. If I lose my job, I'm screwed. If you are sitting on some money and intend to stick with it for a few years, then this is definitely a good time to get a house.

I'm not stressed out because I keep my faith in a God who is a great Provider. I had been into a lot of financial crisis before to the point of bankruptcy and coming from a country , where poverty is rampant, I don't stress out about so much the economy. It's enough for us that we have a roof to shelter us, food on the table to fees our stomachs and clothing to cover our bodies. There's so much consumerism in the world that a lot of people are stressed out and even anxious about things that they don't really need.

I can't let what the media says affect my purchasing. I will probably be buying a house in 6 months, and just have to be smart about saving up for it.
