This study was commissioned by Tony Blair's foundation, and is a stat-geek's dream, so for those so inclined, have fun:
It addresses globalization and relgion, but I'm only posting this about the globalization part (will add a religion one later).
Some of the results are pretty obvious - China, India and Brazil (BRIC) favor regulated globalization, US and Japan favor free market, and France hates everyone.
According to the graphs, the countries that most support it also have the fastest rising GDPs. Thing is, we also know that at the very least China, and to some extent the others, are prone to fudging numbers, creative accounting, and exploitation. Which is really increasing their GDP - the global market or their twitchy math and labor practices?Answer Question
