SURVEY SAYS: A Questis survey of 2,000 adults found that 56% believe talking about finances with others is considered “taboo.” Although most are not sure why money talk may be taboo (81%), people weighed in on the most controversial money-related topics to discuss: inquiring about their parents’ finances (51%), debt (45%) and wills (43%). While most respondents (76%) describe themselves as an “open book,” in reality, 63% of them shared that they would never discuss finances at the family dinner table. This week, I’d like to know, who do you share your finances with, and are there elements of your finances that you’re more guarded with than others? You can respond to this week’s survey by 6 p.m. Pacific time today.
