YAHOO NEWS – Iceland best place to live, Africa worst: UN
Iceland has overtaken Norway as the world’s most desirable country to live in, according to an annual U.N. table published on Tuesday that again puts AIDS-afflicted sub-Saharan African states at the bottom.
Rich free-market countries dominate the top places, with Iceland, Norway, Australia, Canada and Ireland the first five but the United States slipping to 12th place from eighth last year in the U.N. Human Development Index.
I don’t know about you, but now that I know where the best place to live is I will be backing my bags, putting my home on the market, and moving my family to the paradise that is Iceland as quicky as possible. I don’t know how to thank the U.N. for this valuable information.
I suspect, though, that the good ol’ U.S. will begin moving back up the list and might even crack the top 10 when and if a liberal democrat is elected president. Of course, if that happens I might be willing to live anywhere but here.
