Chart of the day

This chart comes courtesy of the Kauffman Foundation, which surveyed a group of economic bloggers on their thoughts about the US economy (report here). It's worth noting that this group of bloggers included perspectives from both the political right and left, and registered Democrats outnumbered registered Republicans by a margin of 21 percent to 9 percent.

Other highlights:
  • The top policy recommendation (selected from a small set of choices) is for the government to “approve trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia, and Panama,” with 97 percent support.
  • The reduction of "regulatory burdens and fees on new firm formation” was favored by 82 percent of respondents.
Of course, the Obama administration has made zero effort to pass any of the bilateral trade agreements and has increased, rather than reduced, the amount of regulation on business.
