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.

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 next book, The Good Country Equation, will be published on August 11th2020.

The Good Leader Index

The Good Leader Index is my review of the world’s leaders, a month-by month assessment of how much good or harm they are doing to the rest of the world, outside their own national borders.
