There's a reason Sweden always wins in synchronized skating
A study released yesterday by the Martin Prosperity Institute ranks 82 countries on their creativity.
Turns out creativity is a driving force in the economy: the study found great correlations between creativity and economic progress, human development, and happiness, among other factors.
Each country is given a Global Creativity Index (GCI), which is based on three human factors:  How technologically savvy are they? How capable is their workforce? And how open are they to new ideas?
The list is dominated by the developed world, particularly Scandinavia. The U.S. is rated highly as well.
