Vaya mundo

Estos son los cinco primeros "hallazgos" de Gallup en 2013, de un total de 10 que se pueden ver aquí. En breve y a escala mundial, la mayoría de gente que tiene un empleo no se siente a gusto con él. Eso sí: el número de empleados disminuyó (siempre a escala mundial), pero es que, encima, la mayoría de encuestados piensa que es un mal momento para encontrar empleo en su entorno. No extrañe que una quinta parte de encuestados viva por debajo de la línea de la pobreza. Estos son los cinco puntos:
  1. Worldwide, only 13% of employees are "engaged" at work. Roughly 180 million employees are psychologically committed to their jobs and likely to be making positive contributions to their organizations. The bulk of employees worldwide -- 63% -- are "not engaged"; they lack motivation and are less likely to invest in organizational goals or outcomes. Twenty-four percent are "actively disengaged"; they are unhappy, unproductive, and liable to spread negativity. Bonus finding:Northern American leads the world in workplace engagement.
  2. Global Payroll to Population rate drops to 26%: Twenty-six percent of the world's adult population was employed full time for an employer in 2012, down slightly from 27% in 2011. This decline reversed the upward trend in Gallup's Payroll to Population measure since the height of the global recession in 2009. Bonus finding: Globally, men are twice as likely as women to have "good jobs."
  3. The world remained glum about job prospects: Fifty-seven percent of adults worldwide said it was a bad time to find a job in their local communities last year, unchanged from 2011. Recession-ravaged Europe remained the global epicenter of job market pessimism, while the Americas continued to lead the world in job market optimism.
  4. More than one in five worldwide lives in extreme poverty. Gallup's self-reported household income data across 131 countries indicate that more than one in five residents (22%) live on $1.25 per day or less. In 86 countries, more than 3% of the population lives on $1.25 per day or less.
Se puede completar con esta "Fear Economy" del inevitable Krugman en el evitable New York Times (con esa contradicción se puede pasar un tiempito nada desdeñable, pero probablemente evitable)
