The Most Powerful Countries Of The World in 2017
US News and World Report released its latest edition of best countries study where they evaluated 80 countries on a wide range of criteria including citizenship, quality of life and cultural history. Another major marker was 'power', which measured hoe economically and politically influential a country is. More than 21,000 business leaders, general citizens and informed elites were surveyed to discover how nations are perceived on global scale. The organisation has made clear that the most powerful countries may not necessarily be well-liked but they are the nations that consistently dominate news headlines, preoccupy policy makers and shape economic forecasts. The US was perceived as the most powerful, followed closely by Russia and China. Other countries included Pakistan, Turkey and Israel.
