At a time when intense national interest is focused on the middle class, the CFA/Primerica survey explores a series of financial and attitude questions that have never before been asked of middle class Americans. The survey results, along with a new analysis of the latest Federal Reserve data, paint a detailed picture of the financial affairs of middle class Americans earning between $30,000 and $100,000.
At the press conference CFA and Primerica will reveal the following:
The level of middle class family financial and nonfinancial assets and debt.
How badly middle class families have been hurt by the recent recession and how many are in financial trouble.
Whether middle class Americans believe they have the ability to make good decisions on a variety of specific financial issues.
The main source of information that these Americans rely on for these decisions.
How many seek no information or advice from any source in making these decisions.
How many of these Americans believe they have made "bad financial decisions" in the past and the cost of these bad decisions.
How many middle class Americans say they would invest $1,000,000 if given this amount (and lesser amounts) for retirement.
