NATIONAL ETHOS: PROSPECTS FOR EUROPE ARE DIM

How do countries rank from a philosophical, cultural and economic perspective? We made an analysis of a number of countries based on a set of criteria resulting in a ratings model. It enables us to come to a prediction where these countries will be in the following 5 to 10 years.




The definition of national ethos.

UPDATE: Asia and Africa are fast growing continents. Until the turn of the century Africa was stagnant. But after the collapse of the Soviet Union, its policy of financing of Marxist dictators took a hit. From thereon economic growth in most African countries took off (with the exception of Zimbabwe and Congo). The African population is young; success in the fight on AIDS has grown spectacularly. After initially tripling, population growth will eventually diminish once average income increases. North of the equator Africa is Islamic, while the south is largely Christian and animistic. In our analyses (scroll down) of national ethos we have seen that Islam in its most radical form inhibits prosperity. But led by President Sisi of Egypt and the Crown Prince MBS a reform movement has taken off that will gradually have its effect in the economies of the Middle East and North Africa.
