Happy Planet Index (HPI)

On the Happy Planet Index (HPI), we (Singapore) stand at a lowly 131st position...

My personal HPI is 44.9, which is similar to that of Bahamas, Papua New Guinea or Burma. This is above the UK average, slightly below the world average of 46, but well below the reasonable ideal they have set, of 83. A little above that for Singapore, which stands at 40.8..

one might want to read "The Flag" to see if it gives us a clue why.

Happy National Day to all.
