The Economist Intelligence Unit recently released a study which measures the countries around the world that provide the best opportunities for future generations…essentially a ranking of the best places to be born in 2013 and South Africa ranked a lowly 53rd out of the 80 countries in the survey.
The survey took into account 11 indicators and no doubt SA’s crime and unemployment rates had a big part in our poor ranking. Needless to say that the majority of kids born in Switzerland, Oz and the Scandanavian countries can look forward to a decent quality of life.
Surprising that Britain only ranked 27th…below Chile.
That and Ukraine is apparently not a good place to be born.
