New York (CNNMoney.com) - Even if the economy avoids falling into a double-dip recession, the next year will probably feel like one anyway, a CNNMoney.com survey of economists showed.
Unemployment is expected to remain high, according to the survey of 31 top economists. Their average forecast is for the rate to be at 9.5% - only slightly lower than current levels.
And next year isn't looking much better. Unemployment is only expected to fall to about 9% by the end of 2011, the survey showed.
