People in the Czech Republic are less pessimistic than the Slovaks. Sixty-two percent of the Czechs assessed the economic situation of the country as negative and seven percent perceived it positively. In Poland, 36 percent of the respondents evaluated their country’s economic situation of their country negatively while more than a fifth (22 percent) had a positive view.

In Hungary, 85 percent of the respondents viewed their economy negatively and only 1 percent of those surveyed expressed a positive opinion about the Hungarian economy.

Twelve percent of those polled expect improvement, about the same number as in Poland. In Slovakia, 11 percent of those surveyed expected improvement but only 4 percent of the Czech respondents expect better times.

Seventy-three percent of the Czechs, 54 percent of the Hungarians, 46 percent of the Slovaks and 36 percent of the Poles expect further deterioration in the economic situation.
