Good Country

Every other day or so I watch a TED talk and today I saw a talk by Simon Anholt titled Which country does the most good for the world?.

Policy advisor Simon Anholt thought of a new scale describing how much good a country does outside its borders, and it's called The Good Country Index. In his talk he discusses why countries tend to compete instead of cooperate, why this should change and how this could be changed. He investigated how people perceive other countries and he found out that the countries we like are the good countries. Good countries, what do I mean with that you might wonder. Well, if you want to have an answer on that I suggest watching the talk!
