The power of suggestion: 60% of us think the next depression is coming


You've probably seen the headlines or news, especially if you watch CNN.

CNN recently released a poll, in which it surveyed 1,000 Americans. About 60% of respondents believe that it's very likely, or at least somewhat likely, that the nation will have another depression.

I'm sure it's a good survey, and I don't quibble with CNN polling people to see what their attitudes are toward the economy. That's a hallmark of journalism, checking with the mindset of the public.
