Sempre acreditamos que a sensação de happiness da population como um todo fosse maior nos countries de ‘First World’, ou seja, aqueles countries que têm uma good education, good hospitals and a good economy

O ‘World Database of Happiness’ avaliou 149 countries between 2000 and 2009. Researchers pediam às people para rankear seu enjoyment da vida em uma scale de 0 a 10. O resultado da research é a list below:

1st:  Costa Rica, in Central America (GDP = $ 11,300)

2nd: Denmark, in Europe (GDP = $ 36,600)

3rd: Iceland, in Europe (GDP = $ 38,300)

* GDP = Gross Domestic Product per capita

O que nos deixa surprised é o fato de que a Costa Rica não é o único poor country que aparece no ranking: o Mexico aparece na 6th position.

O que faz estes countries figurarem among os 6 happiest countries in the world? Why are people from Costa Rica and Mexico so happy, apesar do baixo GDP e de tantos problems que aquelas populations enfrentam?

Estas e outras information estão na Unit 1 do book ‘Pathways 2: Reading, Writing and Critical thinking’. Read it to expand your culture
