Las Vegas, NV, August 14, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- A huge majority of Americans are optimistic about the future of the U.S. economy, according to a new survey conducted by CreditCardCamp.com. Almost two out of three respondents (64%) to the poll said they were optimistic about the economy.
The survey was taken amid mixed business reports on the housing market and jitters on Wall Street as the New York Stock Exchange reached another all-time record before moving downward. While the stock market has hit new records, millions of consumers have struggled with financial issues related to the financial crisis. Millions of others have gone without being employed for years.
A record volume of homes and other properties have been foreclosed in the worst foreclosure crisis in U.S. history, according to RealtyTrac. 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.
