Poland scored 31th place in Legatum prosperity ranking. It's better than it's GDP suggests. Above: Italy, Cyprus, Slovakia, Estonia, Greece, Chile. In past 5 years Poland was ranked between 28 and 34th place.

Sub indices:

41 Economy
40 Entrepreneurship & Opportunity
39 Governance
31 Education
33 Health
24 Safety & Security
58 Personal Freedom
47 Social Capital

This ranking shows that health in Poland is better than Polish spending on health (perhaps because there are few richer countries with older population). Poland scores high in Safety, but low in Personal Freedom, as they ask there if Poland is good place for immigrants - the country which provides immigrants, not take them. Social capital is relatively low especially because low donation rate.

Interesting ranking... I agree that Poland is a prosperous country BUT i saw some weird things looking to another countries.

Example: My country (Brazil) is, at the ranking, considered safer than Israel. What a BS. Besides the tentatives of Hamas to drop some missiles there, i am pretty sure that almost any part of Brazil (exception to few cities at the south/southeast) is more violent than the more violent part of Israel.

Problem with Israel is, that the country is so tiny, that it's hard to find a save place where bombs could not reach. And there is so much hassle about the small Israel. It's even smaller than Crimea which Russians conquered recently. There could fit nearly 1 000 of Israels in the territory of Russia.

47 Social Capital

I read this last night and thought of posting - great minds think alike. That sad thing is the Social Capital score (defined as " strong familial bonds, charitable intent and high levels of trust") is so low.

The potential for danger is there, and some times it becomes real. But 99% of the time this is a peaceful and happy country.

There is no doubt Poland is improving every year, it just takes time to overcome 50 years of communist neglect and pillage. It will keep on improving.
