The Welsh nation is feeling upbeat about its financial future – despite the continuing concerns of rising fuel, food and energy costs. Almost three in every five people surveyed in Wales describe their financial mood for 2012 as “optimistic”, according to the latest Principality Building Society Quarterly Spending & Saving Survey. Carried out in November 2011 by Cardiff-based RMG-Clarity, the quarterly Principality Saving & Spending Survey provides a regular snapshot of the spending and savings habits of the population of Wales. 500 people in Cardiff, Swansea, Newport and Wrexham were surveyed.
