University Of Maryland Poll Shows Chinese Embrace Capitalism More Than Americans

A poll by the University of Maryland�s Program on International Policy Attitudes showed that 74% of Chinese citizens agreed with the statement, �The free enterprise system and free market economy is the best system on which to base the future of the world.�

The Philippines at 73%, and the U.S. at 71%, were second and third.

Less encouraging in the Maryland survey was the response of Europeans. Fully half of the French disagreed that capitalism is the best way forward. Italians and Spaniards were more supportive with 59% and 63% respectively.

Both Russian and Brazilian citizens had a distrust of large companies, as well as strong support for government regulation of the environment.
