Theme: Better Life Index. Because in general macro-economic statistics don't provide a detailed picture of the living conditions that ordinary people experience, in 2009 the OECD started it's Better Life Initiative with a well-being research to get more answers on these important questions. The "Better Life Index" is a part of this work and delivers a lot of interesting facts about each country. For example: Did you know, that 75 percent of people aged 15 to 64 in Germany have a paid job - and 86 percent (aged 35 to 64) have an upper secondary education? Another interesting fact: 92 percent of people in Germany believe that they know someone they could rely on in times of need. (OECD average: 89 percent).

The highest level of life satisfaction within the compared countries is 7,5 - that is reached in Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland and Swiss.

What sounds like words from the manual of a pathological narcissist got real in the creation of a monster and a fake puppet master - with a worldwide public campaign against George Soros by missusing all instruments and rules of communication and (digital) awareness. Now Grassegger has met one of Finkelsteins "children", who is still proud on this mess, as Goethe's "Zauberlehrling" has been, too.

Their work shows that if labour income does not profit from the economic gains generated by progress in AI, comsumption may stagnate and restric growth and "humans will not go the way of horses any time soon".
