According to the Legatum world prosperity index. The index measures a combination of wealth and wellbeing of 142 countries. The study combines Economy, Entrepenourship & Opportunity, Governance, Education, Health, Safety & Security, Personal Freedom and Social Capital.
You can see the full report on Legatum website.

China scores high on economy (6th) and social capital (24th) but falls far behind what it comes the usual things like personal freedom (117th).

The best countries in this list are:

1. Norway
2. Switzerland
3. New Zeeland
4. Denmark
5. Canada
6. Sweden
7. Australia
8. Finland
9. The Netherlands
10. United States

19. Japan
20. Hong Kong
22. Taiwan
25. South Korea
54. China

The worst place to live in the world according to this study is 142. Central African Republic.

I think China does pretty well in this study considering all the huge problems it has with environment, corruption, education and personal freedom. Let's see if China can spread its economical success to other parts in the future.

What does their "happyometer" look like?
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

I'm sure their study is based on something (I did not read the whole report), unlike your posts here which are based on nothing. But thanks for your opinion.

Their study is based on something alright. A wish to dominate the world and make everyone their slaves.
After all, that's what capitalism and imperialism is all about.

Are you really so naive as to believe the owners of the west are not behind this little tidbit of propaganda?
All at the top are western nations or stooges of the west. Big surprise there, huh.
