Transatlantic Trends (2)

This post will expand on the previous post of the global-thematic Transatlantic Trends report, that the economy and unemployment were two most important issues on people’s mind.  The visualization analyzes how people were affected by the global economic crisis from 2009-2014.

The Greeks, Portuguese, Spaniards, Turkish, and Americans revealed that they were most affected by the economic crisis, whereas for the least affected Swedes & Germans, what crisis?

The Italians and Spaniards thought that the European Union (EU) was not responsive to combating the economic crisis and that the countries affected by the economic crisis were not doing enough to combat the crisis.  In other words, help us!

In every surveyed EU country, majority of people thought that each country should retain their authority over their country’s economic and budgetary policies, with the Greeks, British, & Swedes displayed the strongest feeling about this issue.  In short, dear EU, thanks for your financial help, but no thanks to your authority!
