Future Now Future Next [ 2023 ] — Volume 3

While economists claim the economy is better, what shoppers care about is their personal economy. In Future Not Future Next we explore how 77% of shoppers are coping with financial anxiety, the 64% who feel high prices will still go higher on everything from groceries to housing and their streaming and mobile fees, repaying college loans, and the reality that the share of people who feel they are “barely holding on” has doubled since 2019.

We pose questions that will help you develop action plans for winning over shoppers who are frightened for their financial future.
