Summary
  • How do you measure the progress countries are making in economic development? Should measurements focus on per capita income or output? Or should assessments also consider education, health, a clean environment, or a participatory political system? Global Benchmarks addresses this need for definitive, comprehensive measures of development by policymakers, economists, and other social scientists. It presents a unique and innovative measurement system for country progress in six aspects of development: economic performance, competitiveness, education, health, environment, and democracy and freedom. The authors scored over 100 countries individually and plotted their development performance along six vectors, allowing them to be benchmarked against one another. Their unique charts illustrate at a glance whether the country's development is balanced and allow both regional and international comparisons
  • This book presents the conceptual framework supporting a development web model, the scoring systems, and 100 individual country development webs accompanied by discussions of their scores and conditions in those countries
