Americans’ financial worries are messing with their summer vacation plans

It’s been years since the prospect of summer fun seemed so shaky.

Over half of the people who weren’t confident they’d be taking a summer vacation (52%) cited financial reasons — another reminder that many still feel unsteady about their money situation even in a decade-long bull market with very low unemployment.

The financial concerns and crimped summer plans didn’t come as a surprise to Jeffrey Pfeffer, a professor at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
