Abstract

Five years ago UK households were running a surplus of £70bn as we tightened our belts in the wake of the financial crash. Towards the end of last year, however, British families were on course to spend £40bn more than they earned, leading to warnings that the UK could be heading towards another credit crunch. Using longitudinal interviews, Jackie Goode delves behind the numbers, to look at the gendered role of financial decision-making, and outline how important debts don’t have to be financial.
