@Description Recent evidence shows that the quality of government does more to shape human happiness than anything else V more than economic growth, education or health. But few societies have found it easy to get the government they want and need. Many states remain oppressive, secretive and violent, yet the only thing as bad as states that are too strong, argues Geoff Mulgan, are states that are too weak to protect their citizens from poverty and war. The democracies of western Europe and north America may have found a rough balance, but disillusionment and low trust in politicians still make it difficult for them to get to grips with problems facing their societies. And at a global level, the institutions that could prevent wars, avert global warming and promote human rights lack the legitimacy to act decisively.
