A surprising map of the best/worst countries to be born

where-to-be-born-map3

這篇文章提供了一個地圖,用顏色說明哪個國家適合小孩子生長。一個經濟人雜誌的子公司 Economist Intellingency Unit 就做的這個研究,主要是以小孩的健康,安全,未來可能過好生活的可能性去探討。另外還有經濟,衛生健康,政治自由等,對2030年做預測,也就是評估現在生出來的小孩子未來的生長環境。

令人驚訝的是他們點出亞洲三個地方適合小孩生長,也就是香港新加坡還有台灣。作者指出他有點驚訝台灣比美國或是德國都適合養小孩,特別是因為台灣高齡化的社會還有逐漸降低的生育率可能會導致經濟衰退。但是台灣的政治自由,健保政策還有生活水準都很適合。

”Here’s a surprise: the top-ranked countries also include Asia’s two super-rich city-states, Hong Kong and Singapore, as well as Taiwan. I’ll admit to being surprised by the data’s suggestion that a newborn today is better off being Taiwanese than American or German, particularly because Taiwan’s aging population and declining birthrate could lead the economy to decline. But Taiwan does enjoy good political freedoms and improving health and living standards.”
