US Crashes Out Of The Top 10 In World Prosperity Index – Business Insider

November 5, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

The United States is no longer one of the world’s ten most “prosperous” countries for the first time according to the Legatum Institute.

The Legatum Prosperity Index assessed and ranked the prosperity of 142 countries based on eight sub-categories: economy, entrepreneurship and opportunity, health, governance, education, safety and security, personal freedom, and social capital.

America experienced an “unprecedented” fall to twelfth in the rankings, as it experienced “weakening performance across five of the Index’s eight sub-categories.”

When referring to the U.S., the language of the report had a somewhat dire tone. It claims that “the American Dream is in jeopardy,” and “the national ethos of the U.S. is under threat.”
