The World Economic Forum (WEF) recently published their Global Competitiveness Report for 2017-2018. According to the WEF, the Global Competitiveness Index assesses the competitiveness of the landscape of 137 country’s economies and it provides unique insight into the drivers of their productivity and prosperity. There are twelve pillars of competitiveness used to sort and rank each country’s economy. The twelve pillars are as follows: institutions, infrastructure, macroeconomic environment, health and primary education, higher education and training, goods market efficiency, labor market efficiency, financial market development, technological readiness, market size, business sophistication, and innovation. Each of these pillars is used to measure a different part of a country’s economy’s competitiveness.
