Money is the primary cause of stress for one in five Britons, but could that change? UCL School of Management’s Dr Joe Gladstone has been discussing ways in which consumers can reduce their financial stress with the Guardian.
Stress caused by financial issues costs the UK economy an estimated £121bn each year in lost productivity, and research by the Mental Health Foundation found not having enough money was the primary cause of stress for more than one in five (22%) people.
That figure is startling, and Dr Gladstone, an expert in consumer behaviour, hopes to be able to help consumers change their financial habits and relieve some of that stress.
