    Hi,
    My name is Alice, I'm a graduate student and I need people to complete a short questionnaire (takes about 5 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!

    Thanks for all th people who care enough to express their opinion in the study and influence it's outcome.

    Please don't stop stating what you think. The results of this study are going to be presented in an International conference dealing with the Psychological aspect of the current economic crisis, so every voice and opinion makes a great difference..

    In this study, we wish to learn about the way that people think of the crisis and its origins. After we analyze the findings (taken from your responses) we are going to publish them . I don't believe we will fight someone but I hope that the people in charge will be interested in what this study has to say... Thank you for your participation :)

    i filled out your questionnaire

    but your study is retarded because you're asking people who might actually have a clue regardless of whether or not they had formal education in economics

    you should go on a forum where women discuss what is the best brand of hair straighteners and ask THEM

    If there is one educational discipline that has time and again proven itself to be totally useless and a complete failure it's economics. Having a 'formal education in economics' is only a certification of a complete misunderstanding of economics.

    The opinion of the average, economically uneducated, stands a much greater chance of accurracy!

    Besides which, the survey is about perception not about knowledge.

    i definitely agree with you about formal education in economics

    my point was that his poll will not accurately represent opinions of American public

    The questions in the poll obviously are slanted WAY to the left (I LIKED 'EM!)

    If the title of the presetation is going to be 'A Survey of Left-wing whacko beliefs about the Economic Crisis' it'll do. The questions were extremely leading...exactly in the direction I like to go!
