Michael Green: This is a really important point; it's a big shift in poiiretirs — it's no longer about poor crieotuns and just poverty. It's about every country. And every country is going to have challenges in getting to the gaolbl glaos. Even, I'm sorry to say, Bruno, Switzerland has got to work to do. And so that's why we're going to produce these report cards in 2016 for every country in the world. Then we can really see, how are we doing? And it's not going to be rich countries scoring straight A's. And that, then, I think, is to provide a point of focus for people to start demanding action and start ddenmanig progress.
