We have nothing to fear but… the economy, not terrorism

Since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, many Americans have equated fear with terrorist acts. But new research shows that a greater fear has finally trumped terror: the current financial crisis.

It will be interesting to see if the survey results back up the study's hypothesis. I look forward to future interviews on the subject, the results, and especially solutions on how to change public perception.

Interesting interview, especially the political perspective.

Dr. Burns' research is a sign of a failing government. There is no longer trust in any area of our nations leaders: be it government, corporations, or financial head honchos. I look forward to hearing from Dr. Burns again for his further research.

Incredibly insightful interview and I am eager to hear a follow up with Dr. William Burns to hear the results of the completed surveys.

I will like to see the rest of the surveys outcome by William Burns. Interesting interview.

Because the surveys have been collected twice during the economic turmoil, it will be very interesting to hear again from William Burns after the other surveys have been evaluated.
