" Switzerland, Iceland, and Norway are the top three. US exceptionalism brings up the rear at #16.

Quote from the article:

"If we are to look to a future when ... 17 percent of the total global population will be over age 65 by 2050, we must view global retirement security as a multi-dimensional problem at the leading edge of human sustainability," the report stated."

This sounds like an analysis applicable to everyone.

Another quote"

" The index, which is a product of Natixis Investment Managers, tracks 18 factors across four sub-indices—finances, material well-being, quality of life and health—to provide a baseline for retirement security around the world."

What could be simpler?

The article published by Financial Advisor - Wells Fargo.
Note that the company headquarters is not in Switzerland, Iceland or Norway.

Somehow or other I suspect that the study as well as the article has nothing to
contribute to retirement investing - other than to incite folks to fear a life of
opening cat-food cans without the actual joy - or suffering - of cat ownership.

UK with its healthcare system is ranked lower than the US - as is Japan.
Sounds fripperish.
