attitudes-towards-globalizationData from a recent YouGov survey of 19 countries revealed that the West is increasingly turning its back on globalisation. Less than half of respondents in America, Britain and France believe it is a “force for good”. Westerners—even Americans, generally an optimistic lot—also say the world is getting worse. The turn towards nationalism is especially pronounced in France, where 52% of the population now believes the economy should not have to rely on imports, and just 13% reckon immigration is a good thing. While the young tend to hold more left-wing economic views, they are keener on the idea of globalisation, broadly conceived, thanks to their more positive attitudes towards multiculturalism. In America, 46% of those aged 18-34 think that immigrants have had a positive effect on their country, compared with just 35% of those aged 55 and over. Hope for liberalism in the West now lies with its millennials.
