Prosperity Index: America is World’s 10th Most Prosperous Nation

We like to call ourselves the richest country in the world, but the 2010 Legatum Prosperity Index has different ideas. The Prosperity Index factors in both money and citizen wellbeing in its rankings. It “finds that the most prosperous nations in the world are not necessarily those that have only a high GDP, but are those that also have happy, healthy, and free citizens.”

Healthy? No wonder America’s at #10. Here are this years Prosperity Index Top 10, from Time:

1. Norway

6. Sweden
