Youthonomics: Why China Ranks in Front of Italy, Greece, and Spain

Felix Marquardt

Is it surprising that China (31st) ranks just in front of Italy (32nd), Greece (36th) and Spain (37th) in the Youthonomics Global Index? Less so when we examine the 9 pillars that compose the Index.

Il avait déjà dit il y a trois ans «Barrez-vous» aux jeunes, dans une tribune du quotidien Libération qui avait fait grand bruit, il leur conseille même aujourd’hui où aller.
