What do you think will happen to the Fraser Coast economy in 2014?

This poll ended on 05 January 2014.

It will stay the same - 22%

It will improve - 32%

It will decline - 45%

This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.

FACEOOK users took to the Chronicle page on Tuesday morning after being asked how they feel about business in the new year.

"The economy has all of the earmarks that 2014 should be a good one," commenter David Lightbody said.

Trevor Boulton said 2013 had been dominated by divisive politics and he believed 2014 could be about working on our own futures.

"With the help of people supporting small business, it can only help," Troy North commented.

Vote in our online poll to tell us you feel the economy will go in the new year and comment below to tell us why.  

Voting will close at 9am on Sunday.
