Needed: Economics I

January 1975
National Review;1/17/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 1, p19
The article presents results of a student opinion poll taken by World Research Inc. in the U.S. The poll shows that the students are conservative on the issue of individual liberties but liberal on economic issues. They resist government's interference with their personal liberties and do not think interference with the economy affects their personal liberties. Only 18 per cent believe that the delivery of gas and electric power can best be handled by private enterprise as opposed to the government. According to the report, almost 37 per cent believe that it would be in the interest of the public to nationalize the oil companies.
