Winners and Losers: Countries are Successful and Why?

    Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


    Combining statistics, sociology, economics, and political science, this book develops a quantitative index of when and why some countries are richer, safer, healthier, better educated, and cleaner. Written as the ultimate fact-check, this book shows that countries with higher levels of taxation, more democracy, social equality and more immigration are more successful than countries that do not have these characteristics.
