Yet Americans' confidence in their own abilities remains unwavering, supported by the strong belief that they are well-prepared to make important financial decisions in the wake of the Great Recession. Nearly nine in 10 (89 percent) say they're confident they understand information about important financial decisions writ large, and they're also highly confident they have the information needed to buy a home (77 percent), plan their retirement (75 percent), and set up an inheritance (64 percent)."Despite the headwinds we continue to face, the resilience of the American people is alive and well," said Sanjay Gupta, executive vice president of marketing, innovation and corporate relations for Allstate. "It is this American trait and tradition of individual responsibility—more specifically, the ability to control one's financial decisions and destiny—that makes this country unique and continues to be the foundation of our culture, political, and financial system."
