Constitutional monarchies lead -again

The UN has just released its latest Human Development Index.

The five countries which lead the Index are all very close in the UN's assessments. They are Norway, Sweden, Australia, Canada, and The Netherlands.

They all have one thing in common. They are all constitutional monarchies. A co-incidence? Not at all. Constitutional monarchies dominate the top end of the Index every year.

Needless to say, they are not to be found among those who are at the other end. 

 Until next time,
