2 Methodology These are the findings of the Wave 16 an Ipsos survey conducted between December 10th and December 20 th,. The survey instrument is conducted monthly in 24 countries around the world via the Ipsos Online Panel system. The countries reporting herein are Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Great Britain, Germany, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and the United States of America. A total sample of 18,676 adults were interviewed for this survey: aged in the US and Canada, and age in all other countries, with approximately individuals on a country by country basis with the exception of Argentina, Belgium, Indonesia, Mexico, Poland, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden and Turkey, where each have a sample approximately Weighting was employed to balance demographics and ensure the sample's composition reflects that of the adult population according to the most recent country Census data available and to provide results intended to approximate the sample universe. A survey with an unweighted probability sample of this size and a 100% response rate would have an estimated margin of error of +/-3.1 percentage points for a sample of 1,000 and an estimated margin of error of +/- 4.5 percentage points 19 times out of 20 per country of what the results would have been had the entire population of adults in that country had been polled. 2

3 Analytic Components There are three analytic components that make up the findings of this monthly Economic Pulse report. Each question is tracked and analyzed from questions dealing with: 1. The currently perceived macroeconomic state of the respondent country: a) Thinking about our economic situation, how would you describe the current economic situation in [insert country]? Is it very good, somewhat good, somewhat bad or very bad? 2. The currently perceived state of the local area economy: a) Rate the current state of the economy in your local area using a scale from 1 to 7, where 7 means a very strong economy today and 1 means a very weak economy. 3. A six month projective outlook for the local economy: a) Looking ahead six months from now, do you expect the economy in your local area to be much stronger, somewhat stronger, about the same, somewhat weaker, or much weaker than it is now? 3

5 The Global Economic Motor Appears to be Idling 1. Citizen Consumers Who Describe the Current Economic Situation as Good in their Country As we close off it would appear that the optimism of progress made on a global scale that was evident in the second and third quarters may have been premature: the fourth-quarter results of the monthly report finds the aggregate confidence motor slowing down to a pause. witnessed a slowly but surely economic recovery in the eyes of consumer citizens. Since January of, the global aggregate assessment rose 3 points (that s 12 points higher than the low of April of 2009): between November 2009 and April the assessment netted out around 38%; in May and June it notched up to 39%; in July it went to 40% and in August it was 41%. After slipping back a point in September to 40% October jumped to 42% (+2), slipped back a point to 41% in November and stayed there in December. The current global assessment now sits at 41%, essentially unchanged during the last quarter of. The first quarter of 2011 will serve to tell if the motor is just idling before it ramps up into further growth or if it s stagnating, mired in a funk. 5

6 Some Individual Country Observations on this Latest Sounding South Africa has stepped up as having the highest increase this wave, jumping ten points to 51%. This surge is set against a backdrop of the central bank cutting interest rates in November for the third time, vehicle sales rising and officially joining the financial consortium BRIC (Brazil, India, Russia, China). Mexico rebounded from its five-point drop last wave, returning to October levels with an increase of five points to 25%. The sharp growth in German economic assessment witnessed over the past year, in tandem with its accelerated manufacturing growth, has slowed down this wave down four points to 63%. Great Britain has dropped three points to 13%. It now ranks fifth last out of 24 countries, followed by France (12%), Japan (9%), Spain (7%) and Hungary (6%). 6

9 Anemic Overall, there s a Slight Net Increase ( 2) in Local Economic Assessment Since March 2. Citizen Consumers Who Say the Economy in Their Local Area is Strong The aggregate assessment in local economic strength sits at, up from 28% in March, having remained relatively consistent throughout. The Middle East and Africa, with a jump of five points, is the only region to have increased this wave all others have slumped. This increase is driven by an eight point rise in Saudi Arabia to 58%, the second-highest global rate, where oil prices rose significantly in November/December. India ranks as the global leader at 60% but also as the country with the highest drop (seven points). Japan s low rate of 6%, the lowest global score, has remained essentially unchanged throughout. 9

12 Local Economic Six Month Improvement Outlook Wanes 3. Citizen Consumers Who Say They Expect the Economy in the Local Area to Be Much Stronger in the Next Six Months Global citizens are hesitant to hold an optimistic outlook on the future of their local economy: only 27% say they think it will be stronger in the next six months down 4 points since March, (31%). Brazil is the definite global frontrunner with optimists making up 87% of their population. This rating comes in tandem with retail sales rising higher than expected in November, driven by credit growth and record low unemployment. Brazil is followed at some length by second place India at 61%. Russia, at 16%, saw the sharpest decrease (-8 points) and swims with the world s bottom dwellers France (4%) and Japan (8%). The German juggernaut might be headed for a breather as outlook tumbles 8 points to put it tied with Russia on biggest decline since the last wave. 12
