A better life
A couple of weeks back the OECD poked a stick at us.
You know the drill – high/growing debt; limited housing affordability; exposed banking sector; poor governance; slowing productivity, little wage growth; growing inequality, complacency and expectancy.
Well, to misquote Dylan, “We don’t need a weatherman to tell us which way the wind blows”.
Anyway, that’s what I am here for!
But the OECD – again, telling us something that we already know – thinks that Australia is a bloody great place to live.
If you can afford the rent!
The OCED’s Better Life Index – see our chart below – ranks each member country on 11 quality-of-life measures.
Were out in front of the average on almost all of them – scoring especially well on all those measures that make life worth a damn.
So if you are feeling down, well, we are apparently the best of the comparative bunch.
