Does size matter?

GDP top five countries are 1 USA, 2 China, 3 Japan, 4 Germany and 5 UK but their happiness ranking are USA 13, China 83, Japan 53, Germany 16 and UK 23.


It might be good to increase GDP by promoting globalization but at the same time there will be the negative impacts such as unemployment issues and immigrant issues. I think that is reason why high GDP ranking countries’ happiness rankings are not similarly high.


UK's exit from EU and American President election nominee Donald Tramp's "America First Policy" are negative movements for the Globalization, but this might be natural because Globalization and Localization trends have been changed repeatedly in the history.
