Fortune cookies aside, you know you’re an economist if, rather than just get t-shirts printed like a normal human being, you design a survey to elicit preferences and estimate demand as part of the process. *sigh* So I am trying to move forward with t-shirts/sweatshirts/other textile items, and I need your help. Here’s a quick survey on your apparel preferences, and it would be super helpful for you to take a minute to fill it out regardless of whether or not you are interested in such items so that I have (somewhat) unbiased results. (I promise you are not the subject of a hidden economic experiment, though that would have been awesome.) Also, feel free to distribute the link, since the more information I can get the better. (If I had it my way, the shirts would be pink and bedazzled, but I have a sneaking suspicion that that might not be the most socially beneficial idea.)
If you want to send the link to others, the URL is http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=vylcthldYjM_2f_2bSsfP7ihMA_3d_3d.
To refresh your memory, the shirts would feature some version of the following graphic: (the modifications are outlined in the first question of the survey)
The survey will be open through Friday, October 23, and then I will figure out how best to move forward with the design and orders and such.
