In the previous Punny Poll, you were asked if you expected to make more money in 2007 than you did in 2006. A third of you (32%) gave a flat-out no. This means you’ll actually be making less money in 2007 once you adjust for inflation. The same goes for the 22% who said they’d make up to 4% more; that 4% probably won’t cover the rising cost of goods and services. A little over a quarter of voters said they’d make 4-10% more, and I’d say that’s a healthy goal. Almost 20% expect 2007 to bring a jump in income greater than 10%.
I expect to fall in that 10%+ group thanks to a nice raise at work and lots of side income from my hobbies like Punny Money and
exotic dancing stamp collecting.
Earlier this week I commented on our nation’s recent obsession with very big TVs that cost Americans $11 billion last year alone. I’m curious as to how much of that $11 billion might have come from Punny Money readers.
