Backlash Against Globalization and CEOs
Note that the color for the "no" category is not consistent from top to bottom:
I'm surprised how many people support pay caps for CEOs, and at the large number of people who do not believe that there is equal opportunity. The article reports that "Large majorities of people in the US and in Europe want higher taxation for the rich and even pay caps for corporate executives to counter what they believe are unjustified rewards and the negative effects of globalisation." There is also more uncertainty about the effects of globalization than I would have guessed. Although the majority of those with an opinion view globalization negatively, more than 40% of the people polled weren't sure how to answer. More detail here (free).
