The Bush administration expects the economy to recover from the recession beginning this summer and predicts a brisker upturn by the end of the year. But some economists are more pessimistic.
Of 382 Evening Sun readers and other callers to Sundial, 144 (37.6 percent) agreed that the economy will begin to improve in mid-summer. Eighty-four callers (21.9 percent) predicted the recovery will begin at the end of the year.
The more pessimistic callers included 69 (18 percent) who said the recession will continue into 1992 and 85 (22.2 percent) who believe it will last even longer.
