The Economist has released an almost providential study, now that we are so much in crisis and, therefore, so deeply depressed. This study is based on the opportunities that the main countries of the world offer to their citizens in order to enjoy a full and happy life. Twenty years ago the United States and France headed the ranking, and countries such as Italy, Spain, Germany and Britain where classified within the first 15 positions. The league of 1988 was dominated by big democratic countries with an epic military curriculum and a powerful mass of population. After a quarter of a century, Europe is still the best continent to be born in. There is no place in the world where governments offers better aces to the people. However, the nine European countries that are currently among the best 15 places to live are demographically small and have modest armies and modest official languages such as Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, Danish, Dutch, Irish or even Rhaeto-Romance (Switzerland).
