Heartland Monitor Poll: Fiscal Future

November 22, 2013
Washington, DC

On September 20, 2008, the subprime mortgage crisis caused the Dow Jones Industrial Average to plummet 777.68 points, more than any single day in history. The effect was global, and many middle-class Americans found themselves out of work, dealing with underwater mortgages, and unable to make ends meet.

Drawing on key findings from the upcoming Allstate/National Journal Heartland Monitor Poll, this summit explored how connected Americans are to the financial system five years after the crash. National Journal and The Atlantic gathered experts to take a comprehensive look at this country’s level of trust in the financial system’s key players and Americans’ beliefs about what the fiscal policy debates in Washington mean for their own personal bottom line.
