Kauffman Survey of Economics Bloggers for QII
From the Kauffman Foundation:
America’s top economics bloggers represent a diverse group of writers with wide-ranging intellectual and political vantage points on one of the most important issues of the day—the economy. As independent thinkers who are immersed in discourse through the innovation of blogging, these economics writers have a unique voice and perspective, and potentially profound influence. The Kauffman Foundation is tapping their insights in a series of surveys called Kauffman Economic Outlook: A Quarterly Survey of Leading Economics Bloggers.
Economics bloggers have a balanced outlook on the U.S. economy in this quarter (second quarter 2010), with 59 percent saying that conditions are mixed, and the rest evenly split between positive and negative views. For an economy in which growth is the norm, 36 percent of respondents think that the U.S. economy is worse than official statistics indicate, and only 14 percent believe it is better. Regardless, the consensus three-year projection sees moderate growth in all areas: Gross Domestic Product, employment, inflation, and budget deficits. Fastest growth is expected in real interest rates.
