Faculty Row's core goal of shining light on academic intelligence still lives. In 2013 Faculty Row sent a survey to professors across the world asking them rate the US economy. Here is the subsequent press release that was produced:
Our 2017 survey "The US Economy is NOT Fine (2017)" will be distributed to media outlets starting on January 20th, 2017.
This survey is open to professors across the world and across disciplines, and we encourage you to advise President Trump on what he should do to help the US economy.
The survey consists of three questions. Questions #2 and#3 are optional.
1) The first is simply rate the US economy on a scale of 1-10 (“1" being terrible and “10" excellent) your assessment on how well the US is doing.
2) Asks your opinion regarding whether based on what you know or have heard about Donald Trump’s proposals, whether you think they will help, hurt, or have no impact on the US economy.
3) The third question is open-ended, asking you to offer in your opinion one suggestion or policy regarding what you think the Trump administration should do that would best help the US economy.
Results of the survey will be tabulated and released to the media and posted on Faculty Row.
Individual suggestions (anonymously or with name and institutional affiliation if noted) for what the Trump Administration should do may also be made public, posted, and disclosed to the media.
This is your chance to be a US presidential advisor and provide recommendations regarding what the Trump administration should do to improve the US economy.
The Deadline for submissions is Monday, January 16th, 2017 @ 12:00PM EST.
