So just what are your neighbors and firends thinking about the economy...
This survey was conducted randomly with people I just happened to cross in my daily travels. I asked those I met two short questions: #1: Are we in for a double dip recession? And #2: Were you affected by the most recent recession?
Yes, I don't even think the last one is over. 2. Me personally, not at all but it has my parents. Adam Vernon, 17.
Yes. Thank you, Obama, for making stocks affordable. 2. I used to have a retirement fund. John Greendale, 71.
