Las Vegas, NV, August 22, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- An over-whelming number of Americans feel the U.S. economic recession is still in progress, according to a brand new exclusive independent Money Journal.com survey.
A stunning 89% of respondents, which is nearly nine-out-of-ten, said they feel the economy is still in an economic recession. U.S. government agencies, including the Federal Reserve said the nation's economy got out of a recession more than a year ago. But Americans still see economic turmoil in their own lives and communities five years to the month after the financial crisis hit Wall Street.
Lower earning reports from major corporations also seem to add credence to the survey, which was conducted online over a ten day span on the website. Money Journal regularly surveys visitors on important issues related to the economy and is regarded as a leading independent resource for consumers.
However, there are signs that things are improving at least in some sectors of the economy like housing, where home sales have been on an up-swing for most of two years and financial markets. It seems that this economic recession or cycle just doesn’t want to turn the corner yet.
Journalists, including experts in stocks, bonds, real estate and banking provide detailed reports and forecasts on Money Journal so consumers can better protect themselves in the world of finance. There are lots of ways to save money on all sorts of products and services provided through the website on everything from a home mortgage to power bills to the price of a tank of gas.
