The blog post about the World Cup from the bloke who knows stuff all about it

Who should I cheer for helps you decide which World Cup team team to support on any given match based on their nations performance these key indicators:

  • Life expectancy
  • National Income per person
  • Inequality
  • Carbon Dioxide Emissions per person
  • Women in government
  • Spending on aid
  • Spending on the military
  • Number of people without enough to eat
  • Maternal Mortality
  • Happiness

It’s a brilliantly simple idea put together by Pontus Westerburg from the World Development Movement.
Knowledge is power.  It helps you make better decisions.  Without it how can you believe, how can you approve or disapprove?
