Results from a recent opinion poll show at least one third of Americans more or less blame the Jewish community for the current economic recession.
A survey by the Boston Review in its May/June issue indicates some 38 percent of the non-Jews in the United States blame the Jews in some way for the financial crisis, while an estimated 25 percent blame the Jews a moderate amount or more for the global economic slump.
The study was conducted by Neil Malhotra, Assistant Professor of Political Economy in the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University, and Dr. Yotam Margalit from the same university.
2,768 American adults participated in the survey.
The survey further suggested a considerable number of participants explicitly opposed to tax cuts for Wall Street giants as soon as they were introduced to be affiliated with Jewish financiers such as infamous fraud convict Bernard Madoff.
The Jewish respondents surprisingly displayed almost the same results when questioned on the same issue, staging more federal support for state governments and tax breaks for the middle class rather than big business.
The research also notes that 32 percent of the US Democrats attributed at least moderate blame to the Jews despite the fact that Jews are a central part of the Democratic Party’s electoral coalition.
The financial crisis in the US has swept off nearly six million jobs since the start of the recession in December 2007 with American taxpayers, the working class in particular, growing a grudge against bailed-out businesses.
2,768 American adults participated: How representative is that of 300,000,000 Americans? Do they really think that? Even the jewish respondants think that?
