Economic impact of Christmas shopping
Friday, December 11th, 2009
Every year the holiday season brings to mind two side of the same coin: the economic impact of Christmas shopping and a recap on American’s religious beliefs. Also, the latest polls result on Afghanistan and the health debate in this week’s What Are We Thinking with Frank Newport, editor-in-chief at the Gallup Poll and WHYY’s Dave Heller.
This week on What Are We Thinking:
- The latest on the relation between religion and political affiliation.
- How does this year’s holiday season spending stack up against last year so far?
- General Stanley McCrystal testified on Capitol Hill this week about his view of the President Obama’s new strategy relating to Afghanistan. Do Americans think the new strategy will be successful?
- Finally, who worries more: young people, middle age people or old people?
