    • US to Israel
    • 09.11.10 | 02:11 (IST)

    why? because despite all the wars Israel has a high standard of living, right below the UK, Japan, and Brazil. And this is considering such a young country. The US scored an 78 to Israels 67. #1 on the list is france with a score of 82. Unfortunately their infrastructure score was what really dragged them down. All things considered, Israel is a world leader because of the science, and technology, and a huge and healthy economy, which will only get stronger in the coming years with the recent discovery or natural gas and sand oil. Plus, there are considerable investments in israel taking place, including billions by warren buffet for example. Dont be disillusioned by thinking the US is so much higher and better. Israel is a young country and has the ability to use todays technology while creating and growing the country. Although they are below many other countries, Israel is climbing steadily and has been consistantly. Now is the perfect time to invest and reap the rewards of doing so in the years to come.
