The Good Country

What’s gone wrong
with the world?

Things seem to be getting worse all the time: climate change, terrorism, pandemics, migration, economic chaos… the list goes on. All these problems have grown too big and too complex for any individual nation to solve. But instead of collaborating, nations spend all their energy and resources competing against each other. This has to change if we want to make the world work. This is why the Good Country exists.

People, Places, Power: The Podcast

People, Places, Power is a podcast hosted by Simon Anholt and Professor Nick Cull of the University of Southern California. Each week, we discuss international relations, foreign policy, public diplomacy and a whole lot of other issues along the way — including, of course, good countries and good leaders.

Good Country Index

The idea of the Good Country Index is simple: to measure what each country on earth contributes to the common good of humanity, and what it takes away, relative to its size.

The Good Country Equation

Simon Anholt’s latest book, The Good Country Equation, is now available in bookstores worldwide.
