Germany has beaten the US to be named the best country in the world (Top 10 list)

Germany named best country in the world


US knocked off top spot while UK comes third, according to 'global public opinion' survey (America topped the chart in the last 5 years)

ADAM WITHNALL Author Biography Thursday 13 November 2014

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/wo...d-9858762.html


The complete list of the Top 10 countries in the world according to global public opinion:

1. Germany
2. USA
3. UK
4. France
5. Canada
6. Japan
7. Italy
8. Switzerland
9. Australia
10. Sweden

NB: Russia had seen the sharpest downward trend in public opinion this year. It slipped 3 places to 25th, overtaken by Argentina, China and Singapore.



• Maria Sharapova • Dominika Cibulkova • Eugenie Bouchard • Garbine Muguruza •
• Andy Roddick • Mikhail Youzhny • Grigor Dimitrov • Novak Djokovic •

Global public opinion? How many people participated in the poll, form how many countries, cities? No data about it.

Looks like one more "Western world is the best according to the Western world" useless poll , which has no creadibility

Maria Sharapova
Career Grand Slam Winner
Wimbledon 2004 ~ US Open 2006 ~ Australian Open 2008 ~ French Open 2012 and 2014

WTA Championships 2004
London Olympics silver medallist

35 WTA titles , including 14 Tier I titles

Airport bosses want another €3.2 billion to finish off Berlin's scandal-dogged attempt to build a new international airport, according to reports, because it is too small.

The only poll I ever bother to look is "in which country the ppl are the most happy"

"People were created to be loved, things were created to be used.
The reason why the world is in chaos is because things are being loved, and people are being used."

There is such a list and it's mostly the same. Scandinavian countries, small European countries with high GDP per capita, Canada, Australia etc...

It all just boils down to this, "standard of living". I mean we know places like these have good standards of living. But mostly they're just boring.

Give me places like India, China any day, where a lot of people may not be happy, standards of living poor but where I feel alive.

Russia deserves to go down on this list because it has had a very negative reputation in the past year or so, as it should. But I like Russia. There is something about the place that makes me feel "at home".

Sounds like you are saying this from the point of view of someone who feels "alive" in such countries as long as you do not have to share in the unhappiness and poor standards of living.
Would you feel the same if you were one of those people instead of just a visitor?

This was subjectively proven in Brazil this summer, but they beat us in the group stage. This makes it sound like it was the final.
