Some say we’ve just seen the summer of love, with economic indicators showing the recession is slowing. Yet is this the beginning of the end, or just a temporary pause before another big economic dip?

Which of these is CLOSEST to your view of the shape of the economic growth?

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
