Here’s an interesting graph from the World Economic Forum from their article Which countries are on the right track, according to their citizens?

Discontent spreads

Between October and November 2016, the percentage of people who believe things are on the right track in their country dropped by 2 percentage points to 37% globally.

China is bucking the trend with 90% of people expressing confidence in their country’s direction, followed by Saudi Arabia (80%). More than three quarters of Indians and just under six in ten people in Russia and Argentina also believe their country is on the right track.

Brazil is the notable exception among the BRICs nations with only 17% believing the country is heading in the right direction. In Asia, South Korea is an outlier too. Just 13% of its citizens have faith in the country’s trajectory.

Among the Western nations, Canadians are the only people with a predominantly positive outlook (54%).

The US is in the midfield, despite a small month-on-month drop in confidence from 37% to 35%. However, the survey was conducted before the presidential election, and the mood may have changed.

France and Mexico bring up the rear as their citizens have the least confidence in their country’s direction: 88% and 96% of the populace respectively believe that their country is on the wrong track.

A gender split suggests that, globally, men are more optimistic about their nations’ direction than women, with the biggest gender confidence gaps in the US, Israel and Russia.

The most worrying issue in the US is terrorism. Isn’t that a hoot? How many in the US have died from terrorism?

How much terrorism has the US sponsored in other nations, including its own drone policy?

The US warmongers sure have stirred up a lot of irrational fear of terrorism in the US.

The chances of dying in a terrorist attack in the US (with 9/11 statistics included) is around 1 in a million per year. Compared to dying from non-terrorist gun violence, that is nothing. Gun related deaths are 1 in about 30,000 or so (varying on definitions and year.) And most of those deaths are caused by someone the victim knows. But leave it to fear mongers with political aspirations to stoke the paranoia against foreigners and minorities.
