Stimulus poll results
...forecasts not good
This past week's poll asked our readers to predict the results of the recently passed stimulus bill and, if our collective powers of prognostication prove reliable, we're in for a whole lotta' continued economic hurt.
Here's how it went:
2% predicted an economic recovery (All hail "The One"!)
6% predict that the recession will get even deeper
19% see the specter of Jimmy Carter era style inflation
Nobody thinks deflation alone will be a problem
And a whopping 73% believe we'll actually be plagued with a combination of two out of the last three choices.
