Over 1 in 3 Surveyed Feel Economy is Too Sluggish


This week’s Sentiment Survey special question asked AAII members for their opinion on the current pace of economic growth. More than one of three respondents (36%) describe economic growth as slow, weak or anemic. An additional 16% say economic growth is too slow and 10% say growth is disappointing or otherwise unacceptable. Just 6% said they are encouraged by the pace of growth or otherwise describe the economy as growing.

Here is a sampling of the responses:

  • “Economic growth is growing at an unacceptable pace.”
  • “It’s slower than I’d like, but at least it’s going in the right direction generally.”
  • “It is anemic for far too long; changes are needed on multiple fronts.”
  • “Slow but steady.”
  • “Slow and sluggish and likely to stay that way for some time.”
