    Hi,
    My name is Alice, I'm a graduate student and I need people to complete a short questionnaire (takes about 10 min.) about the current economic crisis for my thesis. It is part of an international study conducted by an academic group in the US, Europe and Africa .
    The idea is to let people tell us what they people think about the economic crisis.
    It is very important!

    BACK OFF

    One of the main problems we have is government getting too huge, government getting it's tendrils into every aspect of life, and government thinking it is to go by the example of Robin Hood and not the US Constitution.... Government should do basically what ONLY government CAN do. Not try and make this more of a nanny state, personally or economically.

    Government does not create jobs or wealth, people do and businesses do. More government and more government intervention is not going to fix our economy. CUT sending, cut taxation (and equalize taxation), and reduce the realms in which government resides.

    Done, Alice. I needed folks to do the same for me with my master's. Survey Monkey is good.

    You do realize, on the other hand, that one of the reasons the 1920's economic crisis was so strong and lasted for so many years is that the government didn't interfere on time, because of the ideology of the free independent market and its forces to reach balance without government interference...

    At least, that's the story we get in the gubmint schools.

    Here's a piece that may well expand your scope of information on the subject.

    Great myth of the 20th century. That Conservatives have a clue. The period from 20Jan01 to 20Jan09 has proven the total cluelessness of the Conservative Movement, much to the chagrin of the conservatives.
