10/05/2007 - Americans are trading more in the global economy and liking it less, according to a worldwide attitude survey released Thursday by a Washington think tank.

That's lower than in any other nation, rich or poor, according to the latest Pew Global Attitudes poll of 45,000 people in 47 nations on five continents.

Americans, along with most other countries surveyed, also said they favored more restrictions on immigration.

U.S. residents' lackluster support for world trade contrasts with the strong enthusiasm of respondents in the booming, emerging economies of China and India.
