The Good Country Index - a new way of looking at the world

The Good Country Index - a new way of looking at the world | The Insight Files | Scoop.it

The Good Country Index is pretty simple: a measure of what each country on earth contributes to the common good of humanity. Using a wide range of data from the UN and other international organisations, each country has been given a balance sheet to show at a glance whether it's a net creditor to mankind, a burden on the planet or something in between. The index comprises individual rankings for the following categories, in addition to an aggregate score:

 

  • Science and technology
  • Culture
  • International peace and security
  • World order
  • Planet and climate
  • Prosperity and equality
  • Health and wellbeing
