TheStreet Survey Finds Some Americans Expect Changing World Order
NEW YORK, Nov. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Looking ahead, one-third of Americans expect a shift in economic powers according to a new nationwide survey from TheStreet (NASDAQ: TST), conducted by GfK North America1. The study finds that while more than half of Americans (59%) believe that the United States (U.S.) is currently the dominant economic power, more than one-third (35%) of Americans believe that China will inherit that title before the end of the decade.
"Despite the slow economic recovery of the five years since the financial crisis, most people in the United States still regard the nation as the world's dominant economic power," said Joe Deaux, TheStreet's Economics Analyst. "However, confidence that the U.S. will retain that status five to seven years out wavers. Though respondents still see the U.S. in the future as the outright economic leader, favor for China substantially narrows the gap."
