Poll: 85% believe economic situation will be the same or worse in five years
A large majority of Czechs believe the country’s economic situation will be the same or worse in five years’ time, according to a poll by the STEM agency. The poll suggests that view is held by 85% of people, with 57% of respondents expecting further downturns. Only 15% of those polled expressed optimism about the economic future. STEM, which has carried out the poll since 1993, says public expectations for the future have never been grimmer than this year and last year.
