The Happy Country standings are out!
It is easy to see why people would be happy, and unhappy in a country. If you have: shelter, food, water, and work, then you probably live in a happy country. On the other hand, you can have all of the above, and if you have corruption and violence, and live in fear, then maybe your country is unhappy. This is what the study is all about, to measure the many countries of the world. And, possibly to provide a scale or a ranking to determine how to make things better in the countries that are having a difficult time in developing. Changes take allot of time, and it takes powerful forces to enable change in countries that are war ravaged and corrupted. Stability comes first. Then a country can grow. Trade and business can flourish under a stable rebuilding program. Focus on a countries strengths, and let their people make it work. We will see what the next few years, or decade may bring. Hopefully more peace and happiness throughout the world.
