The World Economic Forum released their Global Competitiveness Report yesterday and it offers a comprehensive view of individual country risk/reward. There has been an explosion of these types of indexes over the past few years.
My questions, given that there are over 200 country investment destinations and you might want to narrow that list down before conducting in-depth research:
- Do you ever use these types of reports/indexes when conducting emerging market investment analysis?
- Which reports/indexes do you find the most useful?
- What sort of data/comparisons are most useful (health, education, tax rates, employment levels, that sort of thing)?
- What data is missing that you would consider worthwhile?
