A survey conducted by the Pew Research Center found that Greeks are among the most pessimistic people in the world, as reported by ekathimerini. The survey says that Europeans along with Americans and the Japanese feel better about their national economies than prior to the global financial crisis almost a decade ago.

A mere 2 percent of Greeks were upbeat when asked about their national economy which is the lowest rate among the 32 countries polled, the report continues.

The Pew survey also revealed that citizens with the most positive outlook on their national economies, with over 80 percent expressing optimism are the Dutch, Germans, Swedes and Indians.

Only 41 percent of those surveyed say they believe that a child in their country growing up in today’s economy would end up in a better financial situation than that of their parents — indicating a widespread concern about the future.

The report concludes by stating that the most pessimistic about prospects for the next generation are the French (9 percent), the Japanese (19 percent) and the Greeks (21 percent).
