    For those curious the Economists lists 9 quality of life indicators online. I'm curious at to what #10 and #11 used in this list are.

    1) Material wellbeing
    2) Health
    3) Political stability & security
    4) Family life
    5) Community life
    6) Climate & Geography
    7) Job security
    8- Political freedom
    9) Gender equality

    Texas is half the reason that America isn't #1 anymore. icon_wink.gif

    I wish America was better able to look at other countries. It'd be nice if we didn't have to have our way all the time without thinking what the best way is first.

    Wow, Spain was already down on the list in 1988 and just went even lower today. I guess I did not have it made.

    Why isn't facebook on the list? It is a huge nation of 1 billion+ population, with newbies churning out every millisecond. Just joking.

    I am glad Hong Kong is in the list in 1988, and still is one of the best place to be born.icon_rolleyes.gif
