Americans have a very unique way of life compared to the rest of the world, from the food we eat to the way we spend our time all the way down to how we do business and engage in politics. Even our spending habits and how we approach money is very particular. And a large reason for that has everything to do with the way Americans are raised. From an early age, we’re conditioned to believe certain ideas about money –like what we should be doing with it and how we should be spending it.
But it’s not just Americans: People in other countries have their own unique code of conduct, too, when it comes to fiscal matters. In this week’s video, Chelsea interviews British best-selling author and podcaster, Lindsey Kelk, about the differences she’s noticed between how Americans handle money versus the Brits after having lived in both countries. Of course, while there are a few similarities, there are some interesting differences as well — some that may be a bit surprising and eye-opening to you.
