Hungary has been heavily criticized for many reasons and by a lot of different stakeholders since 2010, when the new government led by PM Viktor Orbán took office.

Nevertheless, when one makes an unbiased analysis of the country’s performance and the government’s achievements, the picture could not be more different.

According to the Cato Institute’s recent ranking of the most miserable countries in the world, Hungary came out as the second “least miserable” country in the world, following Thailand.

Based on four economic indicators /inflation, bank lending rates, unemployment and GDP growth/ Hungary’s ranking is totally different from some other biased rankings based on emotions and warmongering.
