Economic Insight Lowers Greenlandic Desire for Independence

The recent Greenlandic Perspective Survey shows that local support for independence [from Denmark] drops when respondents receive economic information, according to KNR.

The survey shows that respondents who received economic information were more negative towards independence than respondents how did not receive such information. However, the survey also showed that people who held a high interest in politics were less affected by the information provided.

It is assumed that it will cost the Greenlandic economy some DKK 5 million annually if the country were to become fully independent.
