Top 10 countries in the World

Was going through some lists and there were some interesting findings. highlighted in Pink are countries which occur on all four lists.


A. Top 10 highest on the 2014 Global Gender Gap Index

  1. Iceland
  2. Finland
  3. Norway
  4. Sweden
  5. Denmark
  6. Nicaragua
  7. Rwanda
  8. Ireland
  9. Philippines
  10. Belgium

B. Top 10 Happiest Countries according to the 2013 World Happiness Report 

  1. Denmark
  2. Norway
  3. Switzerland
  4. The Netherlands
  5. Sweden
  6. Canada
  7. Finland
  8. Austria
  9. Iceland
  10. Australia

C. Top 10 Best countries for doing business Forbes 2013
  1. Ireland
  2. New Zealand
  3. Hong Kong
  4. Denmark
  5. Sweden
  6. Finland
  7. Singapore
  8. Canada
  9. Norway
  10. The Netherlands
A number of countries occur in at least 2 of the lists. However, the 4 Scandinavian countries: namely, Finland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark, occur in all three lists. This means that these 4 countries are the richest, happiest and most equal societies in the World. It is also no wonder that Iceland with its strong Scandinavian heritage, is also included in two of the lists. So if we are looking for a good societal model to follow, maybe we should study the societies in these four countries.

Any thoughts?
