World blames banks and US

Publics want more aggressive action on economic crisis

A poll of world opinion (in countries that together have 62% of world population) on the recession (what caused it, what should be done). Half the world blames the US, though almost as many blame their own governments. When it comes to blaming consumer debt in their own countries Britain comes top (83%) and the US is up there with 74%. Way down is China (13%). Britain also comes out top at blaming its own bankers for taking "excessive risks" that contributed "a lot" to the recession. The % blaming their own bankers and "international bankers", respectively, in this way: Britain 89% - 79%. Germany 78% - 88%. US 77% - 57%. Americans come out high on laissez-faire - opposed to bailouts of car manufacturers and banks and far less in favour of international regulation of finance than Europeans.
