Global Prosperity Rankings

http://www.prosperity.com/summary.aspx

Executive Summary

What is prosperity, and how is it achieved?

Following a turbulent year marked by a global economic crisis, the Legatum Prosperity Index seeks to answer these two fundamental questions. It defines prosperity as both wealth and wellbeing, and finds that the most prosperous nations in the world are not necessarily those that have only a high GDP, but are those that also have happy, healthy, and free citizens.

Prosperity Index

The nine sub-indexes are:

Economic Fundamentals – a growing, sound economy that provides opportunities for wealth creation
Entrepreneurship and Innovation – an environment friendly to new enterprises and the commercialisation of new ideas
Democratic Institutions – transparent and accountable governing institutions that promote economic growth
Education – an accessible, high-quality educational system that fosters human development
Health – the physical wellbeing of the populace
Safety and Security – a safe environment in which people can pursue opportunity
Governance – an honest and effective government that preserves order and encourages productive citizenship
Personal Freedom – the degree to which individuals can choose the course of their lives
Social Capital – trustworthiness in relationships and strong communities

Not that there is anything wrong with African countries, but why would you compare youself with the lower half and take pride in beating them?

Last time I've checked, being the MVP of a losing team is still a loser.
