Millennials expect to be more financially stable than their parents but almost half feel they are failing or off to a slow start on that goal

Most millennials expect to be more financially stable than their parents but almost half feel they are failing or off to a slow start on that goal. Host Mustafa Alrawi, Assistant Editor in Chief at The National, speaks to Kelsey Warner, resident millennial and The National’s Assistant Business Editor, about why so many of her generation feel the burden of financial pressures and “adulting”.

Mustafa and Kelsey discuss their conclusions on Careem and Uber halting their cheapest ride options in Dubai and Mustafa speaks with The National’s energy correspondent Jennifer Gnana about Saudi Arabia’s growth strategy.
