Men and women (the only two genders recorded) agreed 95 percent of the time. People of different religions shared similar responses to each other 91 percent of the time. And while those of different nationalities were the most dissimilar, they were still in tune with each other a full 80 percent of the time.
That could be seen as good news at a time when much of what we see and hear around us suggests we’re becoming more and more divided. If, deep down, we mostly agree on what we want our lives (and our economies) to look like, then it’s easier to craft a society (and economy) that the majority of people are happy with.
