In US Optimism for A Better Future Decreased from 81% to 64% btw 1999 to 2010
It is interesting to see how Americans think about our future. More technologically advanced, more equal, and environmentally friendlier. The most interesting one for me was: in 40 years ordinary man travel in space: 53% believe in that. 58% believe there will be a 3rd world war.
