The World Economic Forum publishes an annual report assessing the competitive landscape of 138 economies, providing insight into the drivers of their productivity and prosperity.
This year’s edition highlights:
- Declining openness threatens growth and prosperity
- Monetary stimulus measures such as quantitative easing are not enough to sustain growth
- These stimuli must be accompanied by competitiveness reforms
- Updated business practices and investment in innovation are now as important as infrastructure, skills and efficient markets.
Switzerland, Singapore and the United States remain the three world’s most competitive economies - download the report in full from the WEF website.
