Sweden Tops List of Best Societies

Published lördag 5 juni 2010 kl 12.46

Sweden has come out on the top of the Tällberg Foundation's ranking of the world's best societies. An inventory of sixteen of "the most cited" indices from the UN, universities and international organizations show that Sweden has managed "to create the best of all imperfect societies," the foundation wrote in an op-ed in newspaper Svenska Dagbladet.

The "metaindex" drawn together by the foundation takes into account competitiveness, human rights, the environment, and democracy, among other things. None of the indices used were Scandinavian in origin.

Authors Bo Ekman and James Wine write that the ranking "shows that [Sweden] has developed a model of society that unifies self-interest with social solidarity."
