A new survey shows that Americans are pessimistic about upward mobility, home ownership and travel.

Americans are filled with angst about the economy and the perceived decline in living standards. Rising inflation has increased anxiety levels, as well as losses in the stock market and other factors. National elections are also playing a role, with some candidates riling voters about the seriousness of the situation.

But are these concerns justified, or do people have a short memory of how current conditions compare to those of the past?

A recent national survey raised the issue, with nearly half of all respondents, 46%, complaining that it is harder now to achieve a good standard of living compared to their parents. Additionally, 54% expressed doubts about improving upward mobility and equal opportunity for young people today, according to the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy survey. and the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.
