The amount of happiness that people feel is sufficient incentive for them to work to protect and even increase said prosperity while revealing that their economic principles and functions are of little effectiveness.
Put simply, when a country is used to a favorable standard of living, it tends to work harder to maintain it, and this hard work reflects positively on the economy. This is why many of the world’s most successful countries usually go to extreme lengths to protect their way of life.
Unfortunately, Africa was barely in the mix. During the continent’s young history, Africans had to endure some of the harshest living conditions in the world. However, in recent times the continent has become initiated into a better way of life and most of the nations on the continent are working tirelessly to realize the desired future.
Fortunately, this hard work is gradually paying off, as several African countries have not only been able to build solid foundations for a healthier economy, but have even begun to implement them.
Some star regions of Africa have shown the blueprint for what may become the world’s most prosperous continent. They proved that against the odds, Africa can become a utopia that is full of economic opportunity and security.
Some African countries even boast a better quality of life than some of the world’s most prominent countries and have huge room for improvement.
Africa is currently the fastest growing economy in the world, along with the world’s youngest population and the world’s most technologically savvy population.
With these elements in play, massive waves of development are looming on the continent and in due course many African nations will be able to boast of having one of the highest quality of life indices in the world.
Some African countries are already leading the way. Below is a list of African countries that currently have the best quality of life index.
The list is based on research from US News and World Report and was determined by measuring access to food, housing, quality education, health care and employment. Other factors taken into account include job security, political stability, individual freedom and environmental quality.
