Denmark: World’s 2nd happiest nation has reason to smile
For the fourth straight year, Denmark is ranked the second-happiest country in the world. Why? We visited last week and locals say the social democracy that’s heavy in taxes but also heavy in security is the main reason. Danes don’t laugh and skip down the street but there’s a subtle lightness in their step. The quality of life is high. Their country is beautiful. People look after each other. Not surprisingly, all five Nordic countries are in the top eight of the rankings.
