Here’s why you should watch this TED Talk...
It's an unexpected side effect of globalization: problems that once would have stayed local—say, a bank lending out too much money—now have consequences worldwide. But still, countries operate independently, as if alone on the planet. Policy advisor Simon Anholt has dreamed up an unusual scale to get governments thinking outwardly: The Good Country Index. In a riveting and funny talk, he answers the question, "Which country does the most good?" The answer may surprise you (especially if you live in the US or China).

Simon Anholt gives a nice fresh perspective on how to define what a global community should really achieve at local level, and conveys how crucial it is to focus on collaborating like never before. The Good Country Index reminds me a bit of Santa's Good List; in a similar way, this focuses on how countries behave with each other but also when no one is looking - which is a lot harder to do!
