After finishing our presentations on which economy is the best, I think that Costa Rica stood out from the four top ranked economies: Canada, Japan, Costa Rica, and Sweden. This is because in the presentation, I thought that the Happy Planet Index was really effective in choosing the best economy. This Happy Planet Index included the life expectancy rate as well as the life satisfaction, and the ecological footprint. I think that this method of evaluating and measuring the best economy was something new and was interesting, as it involved many factors from different criterions that was summed up to create one numerical value. Therefore, I think that Costa Rica would probably be one of the best economies in the world, based on the four presentations I heard from.
