The 2013 Legatum Prosperity Index™ Launched

Legatum Institute

The 2013 Legatum Prosperity Index™ was launched today by the Legatum Institute.

The Index, which ranks nations according to extensive wealth and wellbeing factors, reveals that global prosperity has risen over the past five years, largely due to improvements in entrepreneurship, health and education. However, the US and UK are both facing economic decline, dropping four and two places respectively for their performance in this sub-index.
