unhappy kuwait

kuwait ranks 159 out of around 180 nations surveyed for the happy planet index (www.happyplanetindex.org). its quite telling - in an index that ranks based on life satisfaction, life expectancy and environmental impact - that kuwait is close to the bottom of the list below countries such as saudi arabia, tunisia, morocco, lebanon, colombia and most of the rest of the world. the only few countries below kuwait are mainly impoverished african nations.

these results were highlighted in the local press and provide a telling insight into the fact that money seldom buys happiness. even if it did, could you really feel happy if everyone around you was unhappy?
