Kick that around to countries with large populations, and where does America end up? Oh, 2nd. Right behind Japan. Which has a rampant suicide problem, and a shrinking population. And we beat them in Education as well.
I will give Newsweek credit on this though, they did give you the option to look at it by a countries population size as opposed to just everyone lumped together. The closest population I could find to America was Indonesia... and that was pretty far down the list.

In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

there is so little diviation between the countries in the top 15 it's not really worth debating on. Though I don't really see why they consider the US only in the 80's for political stablity. 200+ years as the oldes Republic in the world

They penalized a country if it had abundant natural resources that made up a large portion of their economies. In addition, they PENALIZED a country if it has a strong agricultural base.
BOTH of these SHOULD be strengths, but (I believe) in an effort to push their agenda, the study actually penalizes these types of assets.

In addition I see they give more importance to "equity" than to the overall level of prosperity.
That is a SURE sign of marxist influence.I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.
