A new World Economic Forum report ranks the countries of the world on human capital. FINLAND - NR 2 !
Ranks 1st for education, 9th for health, 3rd for its workforce, and 1st for enabling environment. While it might be most famous for its world-class and unorthodox education system, Finland also has an excellent infrastructure, skilled employees, and the world's greatest rate of social mobility.
The top spots are reserved for countries with superior health care, education, and training, many of which are clustered in Europe and Scandinavia in particular.
The rankings are based on four factors: education, health, workforce, and enabling environment. Education measures the quality of schools and the achievement of students to get a sense of how both current and future workers have been educated. Health measures physical and mental well-being from childhood through old age.
