If you are like many associations, you survey your members multiple times a year on a variety of topics. Those surveys are usually conducted with an off-the-shelf product and then your staff spends time on the backend configuring the results and creating reports to release the findings. These surveys may be conducted anonymously or in the case of benchmarking studies, non-anonymous. But let’s get back to the question at hand,

I learned in one of my finance or economics classes (can’t really remember which) that economic and stock market growth can sometimes be as much a psychological exercise as it is a physical or fundamental exercise.
