Those readers tired of hearing about the U.S. government shutdown can peruse this 500+ page PDF. It’s a new ranking of countries around the world, in a “human capital index” order.
The list comes courtesy of Mercer and the World Economic Forum, based in Switzerland — a country ranked No. 1. The U.S. is 16th.
The criteria includes such things as businesses’ ability to attract and retain talent; the physical and mental well being of the population; education levels; the legal system; and the ease of doing business.
The document first ranks countries, and then profiles each nation one by one.
