  • Gen Z and social media users are rebranding old finance concepts with new terms such as ‘doom spending’ and ‘loud budgeting’.
  • There is a risk that this trend of creating catchy finance terms may dilute the meaning and lead to ‘financial fast fashion’.

Gen Z and social media users are creating new finance terms like ‘doom spending’ and ‘loud budgeting’ as a way to make old concepts seem more relevant in today’s digital age. These terms, while catchy and attention-grabbing, may risk diluting the true essence of financial concepts. The notion of ‘term coiners’ seeking to create viral phrases brings about a fleeting trend that may not have long-standing significance. However, the use of humor and creativity in discussing financial topics could make them more approachable to younger generations, potentially leading to a deeper understanding of personal finance and better financial decision-making.

The article also highlights the potential downside of emphasizing buzzworthy terms over substance in financial education. While some individuals may benefit from the trend of creating new finance terminology, there is a risk that important financial concepts could be overshadowed by short-lived trends. Ultimately, the key is to balance the use of trendy terms with a comprehensive understanding of personal finance to ensure long-term financial well-being.
