Before the election, we hosted an informal web poll that asked our visitors the following question, "Which issue do you think the next U.S. president should make a primary focus during his or her first 100 days in office?" Visitors resoundingly voted for the issue of economy/recession. Here's how the 1760 responses broke out:
- Economy/Recession 62.27%
- Foreign Policy 11.59%
- Environment 8.01%
- Healthcare 7.50%
- National Security 5.85%
- Immigration 4.77%
If you're ready to get even more participatory, head over to The Davos Debates on YouTube where The World Economic Forum invites you to send in your solutions and suggestions for the key issues facing us today. The focus issues include the state of the economy, the environment, US politics and business ethics. The four questions up for public discussion through the YouTube platform are:
- Are you confident that global growth will be restored in 2009?
- Will the environment lose out to the economy in 2009?
- Will the Obama administration improve the state of the world in 2009?
- Should company executives have a code of ethics similar to doctors and lawyers?
The person who submits the best video will be invited, all expenses paid, to attend The World Economic Forum's upcoming Annual Meeting in Davos-Klosters and interact with world leaders in person.
