    World Economic Forum -

    Most people think that expanding trade is a good thing, according to a recent Ipsos-World Economic Forum survey of adults in 25 countries around the world.

    But support for globalization has declined - with half of people unsure of its benefits and a third advocating for trade barriers.

    On average three-quarters of those surveyed thought that expansion was a good thing, with just 5% disagreeing. Support was strongest in Peru and lowest in France.
