Hopefulness and Hopelessness â Voices of the Vulnerable During Economic Crisis
Last year, UN Global Pulse launched a large-scale mobile phone-based survey that asked people from India, Iran, Mexico, Uganda, and Ukraine how they were dealing with the effects of the global economic crisis.
Responses from Uganda â a country that ranks in the bottom 15th percentile in the UNâs Human Development index â were consistently more optimistic than responses from other countries.
What could account for this? Is it that Ugandans are, as a group, more hopeful and optimistic than people in the other countries surveyed?
Or is something else at play?
