Poll Result: 2011 Economy

Our year-end poll asked readers to look into their crystal balls and forecast the economy: “At this time next year, will we be in the midst of a strong recovery?” The consensus was that there was no consensus:
  • 35% Yes
  • 48% No
  • 17% Too many unknowns
Our readers tend a bit to the bearish side, as summarized by one of our comments: “I want to believe it’s turning around. I really do. But we’ve had this ‘green shoots’ talk a bunch of times already. There are some things that are looking good – we had a very good holiday season. But there are also a lot of ugly obstacles in front of us. Europe makes me very nervous.”
