#2 in happiness

Laut einem Artikel der BusinessWeek.com zählt die Schweiz zum zweitglücklichsten Land der Welt. Einzig die Dänen seien glücklicher als wir Schweizer.

Smack in the middle of Europe and surrounded by picture-postcard scenery, Switzerland ranks second among the world’s happiest countries. It has a low crime rate, good infrastructure, and a wealth of outdoor activities, from skiing in the Alps to boating on Lake Geneva. Home to the International Red Cross, the World Health Organization, and parts of the U.N., it’s not surprising that the Swiss devote a large portion of private and public money to health care — spending an average of $3,445 per person. It’s pretty peaceful, too: years of political neutrality have sheltered the Swiss from the conflicts of their neighbors.

Hey, it’s true. Lighten up! 😉
