Pride and Prejudice: Shifting Mindsets in an Age of Uncertainty

A global economic crisis, widespread political corruption, violent extremism and terror, ever-wider income inequities, the refugee crisis…these matters and others have triggered daunting thoughts about the future. So, too, have they contributed to major ideological shifts around the world, as evidenced by such developments as the Brexit vote and the shadow it casts over the European Union, the rise of Trump in the US, and rekindled tensions between Russia and the West.

With our latest Prosumer study, we are seeking to understand how people are responding to these times of intense change and uncertainty—and how brands can help ease concerns and bolster happiness. The study draws on the experiences and points of view of nearly 12,000 men and women in 37 markets around the globe.
