Mapping Global Competitiveness
The World Economic Forum has released the Global Competitiveness Index 2014-2015. The Index assesses and ranks the economic competitiveness of countries around the world based on a "set of institutions, policies, and factors that determine the level of productivity of a country".
Switzerland, Singapore and the United States (in that order) are ranked the top three countries for competitiveness. Yemen, Chad and Guinea rank bottom of the countries assessed by the Index. You can check out the Global Competitiveness Index Map to view all 144 countries assessed by the Index.
Countries shaded green are those which are deemed more competitive and those shaded red are the least competitive. You can also click on individual countries to view the county's rank in the Index and a breakdown of its rank under each competitiveness criteria.
