Summer of Rage? Americans Angry About Economy

Hard times can spawn a whole range of emotions: fear, panic, worry. A new poll shows that three out of four Americans are angry about the state of the country.

Thanks to similar attitudes across the pond, British authorities say they're getting ready for a "Summer of rage." Police think middle-class anger at the economic crisis could erupt into violence on the streets. Banks still paying large bonuses, despite receiving billions in taxpayer money, are considered "viable targets."

In the US things might not get so bad so soon, considering three out of four of the Americans questioned also said things are going well for them personally.

Do you worry that frustration with the economic crisis could turn ugly?
