    More than 29,000 people in 27 countries were questioned. In only two countries, the United States and Pakistan, did more than one in five people feel that capitalism works well as it stands.

    Almost a quarter – 23% of those who responded – feel it is fatally flawed.

    Wonder how much the governments are listening.

    I’ve done some work along these lines also. The usual response from the right is usually simply to stick fingers in ears and yell “correlation doesn’t equal proof of cause”. No amount of evidence will ever convince them unfortunately. They’re committed to their noxious, anti-social ideology.
