(Economies) Economic Attitudes Improve in Many Nations Even as Pandemic Endures (Pew Research Center)

SHANNON SCHUMACHER AND J.J. MONCUS writes for Pew Research Center: As the global economy shows signs of rebounding, positive assessments of the economic situation have risen in several major advanced economies since last year. Positive views of the economy have sharply increased in countries like Australia and the United Kingdom. Yet, many in Spain, Italy, Japan, France, Greece, South Korea and the United States continue to see their overall economic situation as bleak.

(USA) 56% of Americans support more regulation of major technology companies (Pew Research Center)

EMILY A. VOGELS writes for Pew Research Center: Growing shares of Americans think major technology companies should face more government regulation, and a majority say that these firms have too much economic power and influence, according to a new Pew Research Center survey conducted April 12-18, 2021. Still, there’s not a strong consensus among the public that the government reducing the size of major tech companies would be a good thing.

(India) For most of India’s Hindus, religious and national identities are closely linked (Pew Research Center)

MANOLO CORICHI GOMEZ AND JONATHAN EVANS writes for Pew Research Center: At least since the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) electoral victories in 2014, the term “Hindu nationalism” has been frequently invoked in both Indian and Western media, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his ruling party often described as promoting a Hindu nationalist agenda. But there is no widely accepted definition of what the term means, and little data exists on how common Hindu nationalist attitudes are in India and how they vary across the country.

USA – Pastors Often Discussed Election, Pandemic and Racism in Fall of 2020 (Pew Research Center)

Religious belief is key to many Americans’ political identities, but the public is divided on whether clergy should preach about politics from the pulpit.
