This survey, commissioned by the Rauch Foundation, explores issues related to economic and workforce development. Three themes emerge from the poll results. The first is the overall state of the economy. A second important theme is the recognition of the "three T's" - technology, talent and tolerance - for attracting and retaining the businesses and skills on which the new information economy depends. The third theme in this report concerns the severity of the housing crisis for Long Island’s families.
