In the ranking of economic indicators Bulgaria is ranked 93rd, in governing 72th, in trust among members of society 85th, in personal freedom 59th. Bulgaria is at the bottom of the group of top 50 countries where the main role for the prosperity of society play entrepreneurship and responsible management that feed each other with energy and lead to even greater progress. Almost immediately after that its starts the group of developing countries that are more important health and education.
Democracies are 27 of the top 30 countries and in an increasingly global world tolerance towards immigrants began to play a very important role, because where it is large, societies prosper more, say the authors.
This time the index has added 32 countries and so their total number reached 142. Thus Prosperity Index covers 96% of the world population and 99% of global GDP. Classification is an attempt to combine economic performance with subjective assessment of people's lives and the situation in their country.
Hardly a surprise that Scandinavian countries are again at the top, that European economies going down dramatically and the club of the "Asian Tigers" quickly rose in the rankings. Norway, Denmark and Sweden are the top three. In Europe as a whole increased prosperity - Netherlands climbs to 8, Ireland is the tenth and Germany on 14 position. But two-thirds (24 of 33) European countries have retracted since 2009. Quickly moving up are Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand and Malaysia, but is significant that along with China and Saudi Arabia are in the group "prosperity without liberty."
Unprecedented collapse of the U.S. outside the top 10 countries in the world is one of the surprising findings in the report. From the Legatum Institute The authors state that "the American dream is in serious crisis," and the country, occupying 12th place, has given way in 5 of the 8 categories in the index has come down with eight items on the list and fewer Americans believe that if you work hard, you will succeed.
