Majority of Germans Want More Protection From Globalization
57 percent of the people in Germany want the government to put more effort into protecting the country’s economy from foreign competitors, according to a new study, The Local reports.
The study, which was carried out by the Bertelsmann Foundation and published on Thursday, also showed that 52 percent of Germans don’t feel the government is doing enough to protect its citizens from the negative consequences of globalization.
But the majority of citizens in Deutschland aren’t opposed to globalization. Only 31 percent of respondents said that it has a bad influence on the world; 40 percent view it positively.
Similarly, 70 percent of respondents viewed trade between Germany and other countries in a positive light - a jump from 56 percent in 2016.
"People want globalization with seat belts," said Aart De Geus, CEO of the Bertelsmann Foundation, adding that politics and business should not react to this with "protectionist wrong paths."
