The 2013 Human Development Index

March 29th, 2013 at 7:00 am by David Farrar

The UNDP has released their 2013 Human Development Index. New Zealand remains in 6th place with an score of 0.919, just ahead of Sweden and Ireland.  Israel is 16th, Finland 21st and UK 26th.

At the bottom end are Congo and Niger.

All things said, no other place I’d rather live in.

    Imagine how good it could be if we could just rid ourselves of the curse of socialism.

    Poisoning the political environment across the west.

    Red, It could be argued that countries with a socialist outlook are clustered at the top of the Index. While Niger & the Congo are very big on the free market idea.
