Optimistic teenagers expect to earn £51,000
"Teenagers think they will earn more than £50,000 a year by the time they reach 35, and will be able to afford a house by their mid-20s, a survey of 10,000 young people revealed today.
"The research, carried out by high street bank NatWest, also found that teenagers thought they would run up just £10,000 of student debt by the time they graduate.
"However, many said they had started to think carefully about what they did with their cash, with two-thirds saying they felt the recession has improved their money management skills.
"The bank's annual survey of 12- to 19-year-olds found that many of them have sunny expectations for the financial future despite the troubled economic climate."
