Americans increasingly view global economy as a negative
A growing number of Americans consider the accelerating trend toward globalization a bad thing for the United States. At the same time, a majority now see being the world's No. 1 economic power as an important national goal.
Just over one-third of all Americans see the increasing interconnection of the global economy as a good thing, according to a new Washington Post poll conducted to coincide with the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland.
The numbers mark a staggering turnabout over the past decade: In 2001, six in 10 Americans said tightening economic ties were a positive development. That dropped to 42 percent in 2003 and now sits as 36 percent.
