they were a little vague about the report dont you think so? they are mixing up a lot of information in this one evaluation-they are including ecological footprint and life expectancy, and possibly other things not mentioned. and i am not sure how the information was gathered and from how many people not to mention their ages, financial status, and all the various factors that need to be considered to get a true picture in any poll. i would like to see more about it which i am sure must be available.
what i found most interesting though was that the group who conducted the research states that it is done with the goal of building a new economy,
"centered on people and the environment." the words i have put in boldface are quoted from cnn who in turn quotes the group.
i have such a hard time following reports like this. i tend to be unable to have faith in their credibility. it is nice to know that the New Economics Foundation (ever heard of them?) is working on building a new economy though...we could use one.
