Here is a September 17 story detailing a Bloomberg News poll:
I found various aspects of this story to be interesting, but one facet really stood out:
“Respondents were divided over whether the economy will get better or stay the same in the next six months; only 1 in 6 said things will get worse.”
1 in 6 seems very low to me on an “all things considered” basis, especially with the unemployment situation.
SPX at 1056.36 as this post is written
