Do you always look for the little yellow kangaroo ‘Australian Made’ logo when choosing your products? Love a dash of nationalism when your shop? Well, according to a new global study it comes in at a respectable 14th position when compared to other countries.

Out of the countries surveyed, China had the second worst score (28 index points) while Iran dead last (27 index points).
