Perceptions In Europe

June 9, 2012 in Daily Bulletin

David Leonhardt reports on a fascinating poll conducted by the Pew Research Center. Highlights include:

  • Across most of Europe Germany is considered to be the hardest working country and Greece the least.
  • The exception is Greece which believes that Greece is the hardest working country and Italy the least.
  • The Italians believe that the Romanians are the least hard working (but agree that the Germans are the most.)
