The 2013 Legatum Prosperity Index

The 2013 Legatum Prosperity Index | Breaking World - African News | Scoop.it
The 2013 Legatum Prosperity Index™ offers a unique insight into how prosperity is forming and changing across the world.

- Finland nr 8.
Traditionally, a nation’s prosperity has been based solely on macroeconomic indicators such as a country’s income, represented either by GDP or by average income per person (GDP per capita). However, most people would agree that prosperity is more than just the accumulation of material wealth, it is also the joy of everyday life and the prospect of being able to build an even better life in the future. The Prosperity Index is distinctive in that it is the only global measurement of prosperity based on both income and wellbeing.
