Americans increasingly pessimistic about the economy

Belief in the stability of America's economic future has taken a pessimistic turn. That is to say, most Americans believe the future is not likely to bring much change, according to a new poll by the Pew Research Center for People and the Press.

“In general, the public is less optimistic about the future of the economy than it had been throughout much of the recession and post-recession period,” Pew reports, because during the heat of the recession “Americans were consistently more likely to say economic conditions would improve than to say they would worsen.”

Right now, however, most Americans are struggling to see any hope for change.
