According to a Pew Global Attitudes Project study of 2003, 72% of Americans feel that people are better off in a free market economy, which makes the United States rank ninth in that category. Vietnam ranks first, with 95% of respondents believing that people are better off in a free market economy. Interestingly, the United Kingdom–home to Adam Smith–doesn’t make the top ten.
