  6. 6. Global Average of National Economic Assessment (36%) Down One Point, Lowest Since 08/09 Crash As 2012 comes to a close, global economic sentiment reflects a sense of impending trouble. The assessment line, which has been regularly teetering up and down by a scale of one or two points, has reached a three-year low as 36% of global citizens agree their current national economic situation is “good”. The assessment rating has reached its lowest point since the 2008/2009 crash. In fact, nearly all geographic regions studied reflect a negative change in aggregate sentiment since last sounding. The Middle East and Africa (50%) fell four points overall, while Latin America (41%), Asia-Pacific (40%) and Europe (24%) all fell one point. North America (46%) is the only exception as it remains unchanged, however, this is due to the cancelling out of a two point improvement in Canada (68%) and a two point decline in the United States (24%). Saudi Arabia (79%), Sweden (72%), Canada (68%), China (63%) and Australia (61%) lead the global pack as the countries with the highest proportions of respondents assessing their national economies as “good” while Spain (3%), Hungary (4%), Italy (6%), France (6%) and Japan (9%) sit at the bottom. Countries with the greatest improvements in this wave: Sweden (+7pts to 72%), Indonesia (+6pts to 46%), China (+5pts to 63%), Canada (+2pts to 68%), Poland (+2pts to 21%) Countries with the greatest declines: Belgium (-8pts to 28%), South Korea (-8pts to 16%), Germany (-8pts to 60%), Turkey (-6pts to 44%), South Africa (-5pts to 26%).

Global Average of Local Economic Assessment (27%) Unchanged The global average of local economic assessment among the core 24 countries remains unchanged with three in ten (27%) global citizens who agree the state of the current economy in their local area is ‘good’. The poll finds assessments of local economies to be strongest in Saudi Arabia (53%), Sweden (52%), China (47%), Canada (44%), Australia (42%) and Brazil (42%). Spain (6%), Japan (6%), Hungary (8%), Italy (8%) and France (10%) sit at the bottom of the global ranking for this metric. Countries with the greatest improvements in local economic assessment: Indonesia (+10pts to 36%), Sweden (+8pts to 52%), Saudi Arabia (+6pts to 53%), Brazil (+6pts to 42%) and Russia (+3pts to 20%). Countries with the greatest declines in local economic assessment: Germany (-8pts to 39%), Belgium (-4pts to 18%), China (-4pts to 47%), Turkey (-3pts to 32%), South Korea (-3pts to 14%) and France (-3pts to 10%). A Global @dvisory – November 2012 – G@38 7 The Economic Pulse
  8. 8. Global Average of Future Outlook for Local Economy Down One Point: 22% Currently, a global average of 22% believe their local economy will be stronger six months from now, a figure that is one point lower than last wave. Brazil holds on to its number one spot on this measure (74%), leading India (44%), Saudi Arabia (44%), Indonesia (41%), Argentina (40%) and Mexico (40%). A very small minority of those in France (3%) and Japan (5%) express they believe their local economy will be stronger in half a year’s time. They are joined at the end of the ranking by Hungary (7%), Belgium (8%) and Italy (9%). Countries with the greatest improvements: Indonesia (+10pts to 41%), Brazil (+4pts to 74%), China (+3pts to 35%), Canada (+3pts to 21%), Sweden (+3pts to 19%) and South Africa (+3pts to 14%). Countries with the greatest declines: United States (-5pts to 25%), Turkey (-4pts to 23%), Italy (-4pts to 9%), India (-4pts to 44%), Germany (-3pts to 11%), Russia (-3pts to 14%), South Korea (-3pts to 13%) and Mexico (-3pts to 40%).
