Gallup International recently conducted a poll of 51 countries and discovered that Nigeria was found to be the most optimistic country, when considering economic prosperity, followed by Vietnam and Ghana.
Between 500 and 2,700 people were interviewed in each country either by phone, via the Internet or in person between October 26 and December 13.
According to Gallup, “Europe leads in despair, followed by North America,” it said. “The rest of the world, led by Africa, remains mostly optimistic.”
Meanwhile, France leads the world as the “most pessimistic” country in terms of the economic outlook, with the lowest recorded score in more than 30 years.
