According to Nielsen’s Global Consumer Confidence Index for the third quarter of 2009, the world’s top five most confident nations are India (120), Indonesia (115), Norway (110), Vietnam (109) and Brazil (108).
“The world is emerging from the economic crisis and, with it, global consumer confidence is rebounding,” the report explained. “Brazil and key Asian markets are posting double-digit increases in consumer sentiment, while the U.S. recorded its first increase in consumer confidence since 2007.”
It added: “Despite this renewed sense of optimism, actual behavior remains restrained; many consumers remain skittish about spending their money and in some countries, spending habits appear to have changed permanently.”
