Survey Says!

February 9, 2010
In last week’s CI CyberNews CyberPoll, we asked readers if they think that the growth illustrated by the recent jump in GDP can be sustained. Do you agree with the results?

In last week’s CI CyberNews CyberPoll, we asked readers if they think that the growth illustrated by the recent jump in GDP can be sustained. Here’s how the responses broke down:
  • No, high unemployment will keep consumer spending down: 68.18%
  • No, it is due to restocking of inventories and will slow back down: 27.27%
  • Yes, it is a true measure of the recession being over: 4.55%
Comments included:
“The recession will be over when employment goes from a net loss to a net gain.”

“Increased government spending will keep the recovery at bay.”

“A small portion is due to year-end re-stock & investment to keep from paying taxes. However, even more, the ‘growth’ is due to inflation, as all the figures are in dollars rather than value.”

One of the readers who chose the “yes” option commented: “God, I hope so. If this is some false bounce, I’m going to be depressed as h###.”

Do you agree with the survey’s results? Please share your thoughts by entering a comment below.
