"With a relatively low unemployment rate–5.6 percent in 2009–and an economy that’s one of the healthiest even during the global recession, Australia has a lot more to offer than just beaches and Hugh Jackman. In the overall index Australia ranks fourth. In the other categories for medium-size countries, it claims the top spot for political environment and ties Spain at No. 1 for best health care. With its high standard of living, safe cities, sunny climate, and outdoorsy citizens, Australia also has the best quality of life among medium-size countries."
So to whom do we give credit for this rave review?...and why have we blown it up?
