Australia, the US, New Zealand, Canada and Denmark are the five most creative countries in the world, according to the Martin Prosperity Institute’s Global Creativity Index (GCI) 2015. Among the top 10 are featured also the usual northern ´suspects’ – Finland, Sweden and Iceland – followed by Singapore and the Netherlands. The GCI measures advanced economic growth and sustainable prosperity, considering the ‘3Ts’ of economic development: talent, technology and tolerance.
In this report, the institute’s researchers also highlight a relevant link between creativity and social equality. ‘Overall, we find that nations that score high on the GCI have, on balance, greater levels of equality,’ they write.
