2015: Facing financial stress
While Australia has benefited from a strong economy since the Global Financial Crisis (GFC), it seems the afterglow of the resources boom has worn off. Consumer confidence is at its lowest ebb in 10 years, and Australians remain concerned about job prospects, their own day-to-day personal finances, and our national economic outlook. This Wesley Report sheds new light on the impact financial stress is having on individuals and families in New South Wales. We have also compared these findings with the 2010 research we completed in The Wesley Report, Making ends meet: Financial stress is not just about money.
