The paper analyzes how the citizens' attitude towards future, obtained using big data, affects the relationship between the nation's financial development and economic growth. All financial development indicators, except for one, show significant negative growth effects. We find that individual's attitude towards future as captured by future orientation index (FOI) plays a significant role in affecting this relation. In particular, FOI interacts with financial development, and weakens the negative effect of financial development on nation's economic growth.
