Creative output

I wonder if it’s possible to objectively measure how much each country “Creates” anually. Not wealth, more like things that benefit Humanity as a whole. But who defines what constitutes a benefit and how many points each should get?

Research output across all the sciences maybe.

But that leaves out devices that revolutionize daily lives. The iPhone probably wouldn’t even have a very high score on the list, and yet it is one device that has changed practically the whole face of technology, created billions of dollars for Apple and spurred on a huge number of companies’ growth (Pandora, Yelp, Foursquare)

Maybe “wealth” _is_ the only obective measure of how much a country creates.

I’m not even sure if I have a point any more.
