Boring is best! At least according to the Economist's "Where to be born index". j.mp/RZo6KG. Or as Harry Lime puts it: "In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." - the funny thing is: Switzerland didn't invent the cuckoo clock...

Prof Klaus Schwab from World Economic Forum: "Capital is being superseded by creativity and the ability to innovate - and therefore by human talents - as the most important factors of production. If talent is becoming the decisive competitive factor, we can be confident in stating that capitalism is being replaced by 'talentism.'

School is BORING!! This guys came up with a way to measure electrodermal activity (EDA).
