What Your Neighbors Are Thinking

by Bobby Blair
August 14, 2011

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.

Probably. #2 Retire?  When! Bob Nemet, 63

Absolutely. I've been touched. Teresa Lamkin, 45.

#1: Mark: No. Linda: I agree with whatever he says. #2 Mark: We've lost some customers (the Ahronians own a landscape company) who have been laid off. Mark Ahronian, 51 and Linda Ahronian, 56.

Yes. #2 - I dream of the wonderful years pre-2008. John Shannahan, wishful 40 something.

Hoping no. #2 The cost of gas. Steve Bradford, 61 almost retired.

No. #2 Haven't lost a job, but there's still a fear. #2. We're just cutting back. Carol Powell, 47.

.

I don't think we've got out of the first one yet. #2 Money doesn't go as far. Richard Finn, 67.

I don't know. #2 All I know is I'm broke and my paycheck doesn't go as far. Jackie Napolitano, 53

No. #2 A lot less for for your money now. Michael Stepansky, 32.

Yes. #2 No, it didn't, but indirectly it did. Tia Medeiros, 44.

No. #2 - Very little, but we adjusted. John Parquette ,Hitting a half century next year.
