83 Percent Give Thumbs Up to Country’s Economy

Indians have the most positive view of their economic situation in the developing world, says the annual Pew Research Centre survey of global economic attitudes. Even compared to the citizens of rich countries, Indians are near the top with 83 percent describing their current economic situation as good. The survey said, “Notably, 30 percent of Indians believe their economy is very good.” This was “the strongest such sentiment among any country in the survey”. The survey found only 12 percent of Indians described their economic condition as bad. The next highest developing country was the Philippines where 78 percent gave a thumbs up to their economic situation. The Netherlands, Germany, and Sweden – with figures between 84 and 87 percent -- surpassed India. In the USA 58 percent of those surveyed had positive views of their economic situation, just above the global median of 46 percent. The number was 46 percent for Russia. China was not part of this survey.
