The New York Times: The Best Country in the World? Survey Says It’s Switzerland

Between seemingly nonstop political jolts and springlike winter days, the world has felt like a pretty unstable place lately. As news alerts buzz your phone and temperatures fluctuate wildly from day to day, you may ask yourself, are there any stable places left in the world?

The answer is yes. So, relax.

An annual survey of the best countries in the world was released on Tuesday by U.S. News & World Report, along with Y&R’s BAV Consulting and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Their 2017 rankings prioritized countries that enjoyed some measure of peace, quiet and prosperity.

“Our data captured widespread global concern for the social and geopolitical changes that cast many nations into uncertainty and turmoil,” said John Gerzema, chief executive of BAV Consulting. “The new rankings reflect people’s desire to restore some sense of order by rewarding nations they perceive as championing neutrality, stability and diplomacy.”

The survey was conducted after the 2016 United States presidential election and polled more than 21,000 people described by organizers as “business leaders, informed elites and general citizens.” America slid three spots and was ranked the seventh-best country in the world. The results are broken down into a range of categories that include the most powerful country, the best country to invest in, and the best country for women, children and retirees.

See the full article for a quick look at their findings to satiate your escapist fantasies.
