Canadians Not As Smart As They Think

Certainly not when it comes to money.
The product of our educational system exposed to a lifetime of contamination by the ignoramuses of the MSM.

Considering where most of us get our information about the economy why would that be surprising?

Am I missing something? The recession mongers are bleating their fear mongering hysteria on the six pm news, but I can't say I see anything other than the status quo.

Yeah, our investments are taking a beating, like everyone else, but we're not looking to retire anytime soon, in fact we've upped our contributions.

Maybe it's because we're both in jobs that really aren't that closely tied to the economy?

It's bargain days at the exchange....

If you can buy .... do it now.

It's also bargain days at the bank ... if you can borrow do it now ... invest it and watch your money grow.

We are not in a recession .. even if it looks inevitable ... it still isn't a fact.

The shit wits on the news are spreading their ignorance.

And a poll says that financially ignorant Canadians support economics be taught in school.

Well as a matter of fact economics is taught in school.

The problem is that it's not mandatory and that the people teaching it are for the most part some of the worst ignoramuses in the matter.

Other recent polls suggest that about 20% of the population believes that the government makes all the money and just hands it out... therefore the wealthy and the business community are getting more than their share because the government is giving it to them.

One interviewed student claimed to know that political parties have all the money and they use it to fund the government.
Bad political parties use the money to give to their friends.

Good ones give it to the people.

This is a university student BTW.
