Introduction:

Thank you for continuing this debate, bill. I was a little worried about this debate not happening, so now I hope we can a valuable conversation on Nordic Nations and the quality of life in them.

Definitions

The Instigator, who is supposed to give definitions and insight on what were debating has failed to do so. I will take matters in my own hands and provide just that.

Quality of life measure-The QLI measures quality of life considering an individual's satisfaction with and importance of different life domains (e.g., health care, physical health and functioning, marriage, family, friends, stress, standard of living, occupation).{1}

tops-the utmost degree or the highest level.{2}, in this case it tops the QLI charts.

Economic performance- This is hard to define but when it comes to country, the best way to measure and value an economy is by GDP and GDP per capita. A great list of Countries by economic performance is found here and one that I will be sourcing quite often.{3}

Nordic Nations-The countries that are Iceland,Norway,Sweden,Finland and Denmark.

Opponent's Argument

My opponents argument is Completely Irrelevant. 

Let's take a look at the debate title-"the nordic nations top all the quality of life indexes and economic performance indexes"

This Title is meaning that Pro will argue that the Nordic Nations top the charts of quality of life and economic performance charts while Con will argue that the Nordic countries do not do this. 

Now let's take a look at my opponent's argument

Nordic nations represent not socialism but a more s way to use Capitalism for a better way of life
Nothing to do with quality of life, nothing to do with economic output, nothing to do with economic performance. This is just simply gish gallop.Also, this is not an argument. This is simply one statement that expresses an opinion without any evidence

***Poor Spelling***-My opponent says "but a more s way to use Capitalism", what does s mean, clearly was supposed to mean something here and since this is ALL of my opponent's arguments in a 10K character debate, his argument is unreadable. 

My Argument

Point 1-How do you get QLI?>They are really any methods you can take to calculate the QLI and many of them have received heavy criticism for their procedures.{4}

Point 2-Nordic Nations do not top the charts>Let's take a look at the top 10 countries by QLI.

1.Denmark
2.Switzerland
3.Finland
4.Australia
5.Iceland
6.Netherlands
7.Netherlands
8.Germany
9.New Zealand
10.Sweden

{5}


Nordic Countries are 4 for 10 in that list, while Central Europe are tied with Nordic countries with 4. Oceania has 2.

Simply put, no Nordic countries do not top the charts and is a three way tie between Nordic Countries,Central Europe and a little of Oceania.

Point 3-Economic Performance is a joke for the Nordic Countries>Let's take a look at the top 10 economic performance countries

GDP-

  1. United States (GDP: $21,410,230)
  2. China (GDP: $15,543,710)
  3. Japan (GDP: $5,362,220)
  4. Germany (GDP: $4,416,800)
  5. India (GDP: $3,155,230)
  6. France (GDP: $3,060,070)
  7. United Kingdom (GDP: $3,022,580)
  8. Italy (GDP: $2,261,460)
  9. Brazil (GDP: $2,256,850)
  10. Canada (GDP: $1,908,530)
Nordic Countries are nowhere to be found{6}

GDP Per Capita

1.Liechtenstein
2.Qatar
3.Monaco
4.Macau
5.Luxembourg
6.Bermuda
7.Signapore
8.Isle of Man
9.Brunei
10.Ireland

Once again, no Nordic Countries{7}

With the Economy,Nordic Countries are nowhere to be found

Conclusion

Like many of my opponent's arguments, it provides zero facts, is just one sentence that is unreadable and across the board of QLI charts, Nordic Countries DO NOT top the charts and absolutely come no where close to economic output.
