The results from our study showed that Qatar would be the Usain Bolt of the Money Games with an incredible $102,943, followed respectively by Luxembourg and Singapore in the silver and bronze medal positions.

In light of the economic announcements in 2012, perhaps we shouldn't be too surprised by the lack of EU representation with only Luxembourg making it to the podium.

If you were expecting to see the UK here, how surprised are you that they came 22nd with $36,090? We'd love to hear your feedback on Twitter @capitalspreads.
