Study: Nation Facing Greatest Threats Home to Developed World's Most Optimistic Parents

Threats of annihilation from a nuclear Iran, growing tensions with the United States, and a global campaign to isolate them through boycotts and sanctions seem unable to break Israelis’ optimism about their country and their children’s future in it. So much so, in fact, that a new Citi Research global survey of parents shows that Israeli parents are the developed world’s most optimistic.

According to the Citi survey, only 27% of Israeli parents believe their children will be worse off financially they are, by far the lowest among the ten advanced societies included in the CITI poll. France topped the charts in the global pessimism survey with 90% of French parents believing their children will be worse off financially than they are. In America, 62% of parents are pessimistic about their children’s future.

The Citi survey also polled parents in developing countries where average pessimism was significantly lower, suggesting that generally, the poorer the country, the more optimistic the people seem to be about their children’s future.
