Vehicles burn in the street after protestors reacted to bomb blasts which targeted a Shiite Muslim processions in Lahore, Pakistan.



As the Greek economy deteriorates further, the country's people have grown despondent over a lack of leadership and failed austerity measures.But on a list of the most miserable countries in the world, Greece wouldn't even crack the worst 50.

The misery index, a crude economic theory created by Arthur Orkum, sums a country's unemployment and inflation rates to assess conditions on the ground (the higher the number, the worse off a country is).

The reasoning: you can tell a great deal about an economy by a soaring jobless rate and a population that can afford less and less of required goods.


Business Insider
totaled the figures for 197 countries and territories - from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe - to compile the 2012 Misery Index.


Note: Results are based on CIA World Factbook data, which estimates figures for countries and territories that do not have reliable local reporting agencies.

I'm HAPPY we are not on the LIST of MISERABLE country in the WORLD... OH OH KENYA IN...

Kwahiyo SISI Karibuni tutaingia sababu ya KUPIGANA POLISI na CHADEMA; POLISI na PONDA; POLISI na UAMSHO...

Tutaanza kutokuwa NCHI isiyo SALAMA... SIJUI tutaficha WATOTO wetu wapi? Sababu TUNA CHUKI kati yetu...

Duh, nilipoona Kenya tu nikawa najua inayofuata Tanzania, nimeitafuta wee, hadi mwisho sijaiona. Ni ajabu na kweli. Inawezekana sisi tunajiona tupo miserable kumbe wengine wanatuona tuna unafuu.
Ila naungana na Mwali, hawa jamaa hawana jipya inawezekanaje Kenya na Zimbabwe ziwemo kwenye hii list halafu Somalia ikosekane, Sudani kusini isiwemo, Syria nayo isiwemo. Au hii ni factbook ya mwaka gani?

CIA ni waongo wakubwa. Kuna nchi zimeonewa katika hii list mfano Namibia hata Swaziland.
India imeachwa kwa nini? Congo DRC je? Somalia, Sudan, Bangladesh, Iraq wameiharibu wao.
