In the survey conducted by GlobeScan for the BBC, over 26,000 randomly selected people from 25 countries were asked to rate 16 countries and the European Union on whether their influence in the world was “mainly positive” or “mainly negative.” (The 16 countries were: Germany, Canada, the U.K., Japan, France, Brazil, the U.S., China, South Korea, South Africa, India, Russia, Israel, North Korea, Pakistan and Iran.)

Exports and the economy: Made in Britain. JUST over a mile from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, named for one of Britain's most successful exports, sits the Halewood operations of Jaguar Land Rover. Its foreign sales would make a Beatle envious. Over the December holidays the Tata-owned car factory ran extra shifts to keep up with demand.

An expansion to the facility, which could create 1,500 jobs, is reportedly under consideration. JLR is already building a new engine plant in Wolverhampton. Other car firms are enjoying similar success. As Britain's economy stumbles toward a likely recession, hopes are pinned on exports, particularly to faster-growing parts of the world. There are some encouraging signs. A deeper concern is that Britain has become too dependent on moribund rich-world markets.
