Chinese are the world’s most optimistic people about the future of their country, says the monthly survey, “What Worries the World - July 2017,” released by the global market research and consulting firm, Ipsos, on August 6, Guancha.cn reported.

The report shows that 87 per cent of Chinese interviewed think that their country is going in the right direction, being the highest among all adults under aged 65 surveyed in 26 countries, including Australia, Canada, France, Britain, Germany, India, Japan, Russia, the U.S. and South Korea.

U.S. media, Axios, said economic giants, China and the U.S. are gradually becoming geopolitical rivals. Chinese are more confident about the future of their country, while most Americans are worried that their country is going downhill.

Unemployment (36 per cent), political corruption (34 per cent) and Wealth inequality (33 per cent), are the three major worries for global citizens since 2010.

Chinese participants in the survey worry most about moral decline (47 per cent), threats to the environment (40 per cent) and unemployment (31 per cent); while healthcare, terrorism as well as crime and violence, are the top three worries for Americans, the report noted.

In addition, the report pointed out that nearly 43 per cent of Americans surveyed are optimistic about their country in July 2017, down 4 per cent from the previous month, but much higher than during the presidential election in October 2016.

Frankly, this is just consumer commodity. Sounds like fortune telling!
Just after World War II, UN projected great growth in South America and Africa. Forecast put Argentina with its currency value at least twenty times that of US. Nigeria grew richer than US overnight with discovery of large crude oil and natural gas reserves. Nigerians were flying in self charted planes directly to New York. The amount they shopped outstripped even Chinese did today. Suddenly, Nigeria fell apart. Argentina lost hold of its wealth. Most nations face this problem. US specializes in disrupting good growth and normal development if a nation does not try to fit into its command.
