National Survey of 1,000 Adults
Conducted February 25-26, 2012
By Rasmussen Reports

1* Generally speaking, is it good for the economy or bad for the economy when individuals set money aside in savings?

2* Suppose that everyone in America cut back on their spending a bit, reduced their debt, and saved a little more money. Would that be good for the country or bad for the county?

3* Is it true that every time you save money rather than spend it, you help increase unemployment?

4* Laws passed by Congress in the 20th century require the government to manage the economy. Do efforts by government to manage the economy help the economy or hurt the economy?
