Kaum jemand beachtet Norwegen

The fate of virtually every economy on the planet is now beginning to revolve around a single question:Is it mostly a resource consumer? Or is it mostly a resource provider ? If it’s the former, it may have some serious hurdles to overcome. If it’s the latter, it’s likely to be flying high.

[…] today, let’s look at a country virtually no one is covering … NORWAY: Leading the Entire World in Key Metrics of Growth and Prosperity! Norway’s reaping huge benefits from the oil boom. But it’s success is not just about oil:

  • Among major industrial nations, Norway’s income per capita — $72,306 per year — is the highest in the world, far ahead of the United States, with just $44,190.
  • Among all nations surveyed by The Economist , Norway ranks #1 on the Global Peace Index — the least crime and the most security.
  • And among all nations of the world, large or small, Norway also ranks #1 on the Human Development Index (HDI), a standard used by the United Nations to evaluate life expectancy, literacy, education, economic development, and the overall quality of life.

Hmmm, interessant. Norwegen ist soeben zu einem Auswanderungskandidaten für mich geworden *smile*
