The Global Adaptation Index [globalai.org] by Development Seed presents a country's 'vulnerability' to global challenges (e.g. food, health, infrastructure) and contrasts this parameter to its perceived 'readiness' (e.g. economic, governance, social). The sophistically designed and highly interactive website aims to make people more aware to prioritize investments for more efficient responses to the immediate global challenges ahead. The featured visualizations include a historical world map, country rankings, and an animated scatterplot, in addition to specific country profiles. So, with the upcoming economic meltdown, it seems best to move to Singapore, Bahrain or Armenia (?). Similar country-specific dashboards can be admired at OECD Better Life Index , SIMon Social Indicators , World Bank Data and most probably many more.
