As it is about an individual or a family and is also dependent on certain variables , hence the term ” ‘Personal’ finance”.

The spending, savings and investment pattern has changed in last few decades. Our parents belong to a generation which used to save and spend.
Our generation spends and then if something is left, tries to save. Ours is an age of instant gratification-it here and now or never.
