Poll Shows US Greed Survives

A new poll taken by Money Journal shows that greed survives in the U.S. five years after the financial crisis meltdown.

Las Vegas, NV, July 04, 2013 --(PR.com)-- A large majority are willing to work as hard as they have to and do anything else they need to do to become millionaires, according to a new MoneyJournal.com poll. The exclusive survey released Tuesday shows a strong era of greed still exists in the U.S. five years after the Global Financial Crisis meltdown.

The majority or 54% of respondents said they were willing to do whatever it takes to become rich. Widespread criminal activity, including frauds committed by a series of Wall Street traders and bankers contributed to the financial crisis, according to federal authorities. The world economy is still suffering as a result, despite major improvements in U.S. financial markets.

Money Journal regularly surveys visitors to its website on important issues related to the economy, and is a widely regarded leading resource on financial issues.

The majority of U.S. consumers are having trouble just paying bills as the economy is rocked by financial strife five years after the crisis came to a head on Wall Street. Before the financial crisis more than 80% of U.S. households invested in stocks, bonds or other financial investments. Since the financial crisis studies show that consumers have become weary about the markets and are holding back from investing in the greatest numbers since the Great Depression.

Expert business journalists, including those in stocks, bonds, real estate and banking provide detailed reports and forecasts on Money Journal so consumers can better protect themselves in the world of finance. There are lots of ways to save money on all sorts of products and services provided through the website on everything from a home mortgage to power bills to the price of a tank of gas.
