    “In specific items such as access to health services Uruguay ranks with 0.899 which is higher than countries belonging to higher HDI such as Arab Emirates, 0.892; Hungary, 0.858; Poland, 0.885 and Argentina, 0.882.”

    According to this report, health services in Chile are rated 93,2 (which is higher than Denmark or USA), strange.
    Argentines normally tell they health system is the best in southamerica ;)

    I guess UK in comparison to USA didn't even make the chart. LOL I just noticed, the H in HDI stands for human, no wonder UK wasn't even mentioned, but why is USA in that index ?? was there a section for in-humane ?

    But all the leftist politicians in Chile speak out loud that our country is the hell....(from 2010 and on) and look to the side to Argentina as the paradise.....what a joke, uh.....we are over them without waste our fiscal money as the CFK Gvt. does...

    I guess the UN ( United Nazi's) forgot to ask the unemployed, un-insured, and food stamp receivers in the fallen empire.
