It has been nearly eight years since the end of the Great Recession, and Americans still express anxiety over the economy. On October 14, 2016, Gallup reported that 17% of Americans believe that the economy is the most important problem facing the United States, ahead of dissatisfaction with government (12%), racism (10%) and immigration (7%).
