British magazine The Economists published a chart earlier today that compliments our earlier post on gerontocracy in Africa.  In general, the chart shows that today’s autocracies tends to have a wide gap between the median age of a country and the age of their leaders.  In democracies, however, the gap is reduced.

Share your thoughts on this debate with IAHSA. Can a leader’s age affect the overall well-being of a country?
