Posted by a GOM, but he gave no link.
The top twenty countries for standard of living:
Interesting to note the fifth richest in the world lies at Nº 17 alongside Italy?1. Norway
9.= Finland, Netherlands, Switzerland
12. Belgium, Luxembourg
17.= Italy, United Kingdom
20. New Zealand
Is this list just in terms of money? It's interesting that some of the colder countries are near the top of the list. Obviously weather doesn't have that much impact.
What a hoot!
