The Perceptions And Attitudes Of Oklahoma College Students About Free Markets And Government Regulations
This study explores the potential impact that gender and family behaviors may have on student attitudes toward the role of free markets and government regulation in economic growth and the well-being of our society. The findings suggest that students from our sample are somewhat similar to students in other states in their overall views of economic principles. We also find that differences in attitudes about economic issues were related to gender, college major, discussions with parents, and timing of students’ first job. Other factors, such as receiving an allowance, were not associated with any significant differences in perceptions of the selected economic issues.
