    Well, global opinion still favours globalization, or at least its instruments.

    The composition of the poll

    It excludes China and most of Saharan Africa, but includes Nigeria, Congo, Ghana, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Tanzania Senegal, Ghana, South Africa, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, India, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Indonesia.

    But first, the bad news. World opinion on economic prospects is mixed.

    Evaluating the global players

    NGOs 60% mainly positive v. 12% mainly negative
    UN 59% v. 16%
    World Bank 55% v. 18%
    News media 48% v. 24%
    IMF 47% v. 21%
    Global companies 41% v. 26%

    World Bank

    Nigeria 83% mainly positive v. 6% mainly negative
    Kenya 81% v. 5%
    Tanzania 79% v. 8%
    Ghana 76% v. 6%
    Congo 75% v. 6%
    Senegal 74% v. 6%
    South Africa 58% v. 5%
    Zimbabwe 43% v. 19%
    Indonesia 80% v. 12%
    Afghanistan 79% v. 7%.
    India 51% v. 9%
    Iraq 44% v. 18%
    Iran 42% v. 21%
    USA 47% v. 28%
