Las Vegas, NV, May 16, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The majority of Americans are optimistic about the future of the U.S. economy, according to a survey conducted by MoneyExaminers
.com. More than half (57%) of respondents to the poll said they were optimistic about the economy.
The survey was taken amid mixed business reports on the housing market and as the New York Stock Exchange reached another all-time record five years after the economy fell into a deep recession, and the U.S. government had to bail-out the nation’s five largest banks before they went bankrupt.
Millions of homes have been foreclosed since the real estate market crashed more than seven years ago as a result of banks’ lending to anyone with or without the income to support the mortgages across the U.S. Years later the housing market is still trying to recover from the impact of the worst downturn since the Great Depression.
Some sectors of the economy are doing better than others. Employment is improving and corporate profits are looking up, with efforts companies are making to restrict hiring in many areas as a result of sluggish retail sales.
