Voices: Americans Discuss How Worries Over Economy Have Affected Personal Spending

Aired February 27, 2001 - 1:05 p.m. ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

LOU WATERS, CNN ANCHOR: You've heard what the experts have to say about the economy. Here's what some individual Americans have to say about their spending.

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

ED CLARK: Well, I think I've been more cognizant of what I'm spending and trying to make sure that I continue to make my ends meet, but by and large, it hasn't been too bad so far.

KATE BRENNAN: I'm definitely cutting back. We need to see how things are going to change and evolve, and just waiting to make sure that things are going to plateau at a certain point, so I'm cutting back.

LOUISE TREVILLYAN: Really, not at all. I've had the same job for 25 years and the same salary for 25 years, so not much.

BETH JENSEN: The economy has affected my spending habits by making me think a little bit harder before I make a major expenditure.

TODD THURSTON: Not really, not yet. I've slowed down a little bit, I suppose. Christmas was pretty -- pretty simple this year.

CHERYL MCLAIN: It's made me more aware of what I spend and to be careful about what I spend.

MICHAEL MASSEY: I'm cheap, so it really doesn't change it much. I'm cheap.
