Are you less mired in debt than you were a few years ago? Do you feel you are getting richer? And if you are feeling flush, are you spending more freely?

On average, personal indebtedness is down and the value of people's assets - property, pensions and the like - continues to rise strongly, according to new figures from the Central Bank.
