Knights of Columbus Poll Youth on Direction Nation is Taking
America’s young adults are concerned about the economic and moral direction of our nation. A majority of “millenials” (between 18 – 19) are worried that the prevailing economic situation in our country will have a negative impact on their careers. They have lost confidence in government and in business leaders, according to a recent Knights of Columbus poll conducted by the Marist Institute.
Carl Anderson, Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus stated that, “They [youth] want less greed, and the same core values that govern an executive’s personal life to also govern business decisions. ”

New Haven, Conn., Jan 28, 2010 / 06:53 pm (CNA).- According to a recent poll conducted by the Marist Institute for the Knights of Columbus, young Americans are increasingly doubting the nation’s ethical standards in business as well as the government’s ability to handle the economy.
“A year into the Obama administration, we find that Americans – and younger Americans – are having a crisis of confidence,” said Carl Anderson, CEO of the Knights of Columbus, on Thursday.
The poll found that American adults and Millennials (those between 18 and 29) are worried about their careers in this economy, opposed government regulation and business greed, and even felt that the country is headed in the wrong direction morally.
