With Worldview Theme #51

Respond to each of the following below on a 1 to 5 scale, where
     1= strongly disagree      2 = disagree      3 = neutral      4 = agree      5 = strongly agree
If you donít have understand, or are confused by a particular question, select 3= neutral.

Note: An * in front of the question indicates that this has been used in national public opinion surveys. 

*1. I have confidence in the United Nations.  

*2. Our government should pull out of the United Nations.

*3. Policies that involve protection of the environment should be decided by national governments alone, international organizations such as the United Nations should not be involved at all.

*4. Policies that involve international peacekeeping should be formulated by national governments alone, international organizations such as the United Nations should not be involved at all.

5. An international organization is needed to regulate international trade, since without the occasional intervention of such an organization, free trade can lead to worker exploitation, environmental degradation, and / or economic upheaval.

*6. For environmental problems, there should be international agreements that our country and other countries should be made to follow.

*7. I think it would be best for the future of our country if we take an active part in world affairs.

*8. With respect to international differences, present economic differences between rich and poor countries are too large.

*9. With respect to international differences, people in wealthy countries should make an additional tax contribution to help people in poor countries.

*10. Overall, based on its past history, I think that globalization has been good for providing jobs and strengthening the economy in poor countries.

*11. Countries that are part of international trade agreements should be required to maintain minimum standards for working conditions and for protection of the environment.

*12. I consider the gap between rich and poor to be greatest danger to the world, more so than dangers posed by what pollution is doing to the environment, religious and ethnic hatred or nuclear weapons. 

*13. Some people favor, and others are against, having this country provide economic aid to poorer countries. I think that this country should provide a lot more or at least somewhat more such aid than we do now.
