At the same time, both households' views on their own finances next year (-1.9 vs 14.0) and households' views on their own finances last year (-4.1 vs 15.4) turned to negative, while the willingness to make large purchases deteriorated further (-31.2 vs -21.0). “The cost of living is affected by high inflation, and there are prospects for a further rise in interest rates,” said Idar Kreutzer, CEO of Finans Norge. source: Finans Norge & Kantar TNS
