Fact & Evidence: “The civic responsibility to know basic stuff about the economy ultimately falls on citizens”

EXCERPTS:
“According to a new Bloomberg poll, six in ten Americans think most of the money spent to rescue banks will be lost forever. Six in ten think the economy shrunk over the past year. One in two think federal income taxes have gone up in the past two years.

Wrong. Wrong. And wrong….

Here’s a simple culprit: us. The civic responsibility to know basic stuff about the economy ultimately falls on citizens.”
