I don't think that your misery index goes far enough. Surely war should rank higher than both inflation and unemployment? Then there's food security, corruption and human rights to consider.

Yeah. I'm no genius, but I think North Korea should be on this list. And Syria, Afghanistan, South Sudan, etc.

I did not create the misery index. It is an imperfect economic account. It is a measure of the economic state of a country not its social or political state. If you have a problem take it up with Arthur Okun, the creator of the Misery index.
