We're # 1 (Switzerland tops World Competitiveness Ranking)

Switzerland overtakes Singapore and Denmark to make it to the top of the World Competitiveness Ranking.
Short version here.

Some of the details: # 1 in public finance / finance, institutional framework, education and the whole Talent ranking.
#6 in Digital Competitiveness ranking.

#58 out of 64 for prices...

It's looks entirely unserious. Switzerland ranks 57th in that survey on 'enforcing contracts', way below Russia, China, Kazakhstan (ranked 4th globally!) and Uzbekistan.

'Starting a business' is apparently harder in Switzerland (rank 84) than Afghanistan (rank 52). Bonkers.

In Afghanistan one only has to get rid of the competition

If a country has fewer rules and regulations in order to start a business, then it will be higher up in the rankings.

The rankings aren't showing whether it's desirable, or safe to set up a business though.

And I thought the automatic rolling of contracts was bad in Switzerland.

One hesitates to think of the contractual landscape in Nur-Sultan. Maybe that's how it became the capital, Almaty forgot to renew

Yes, IMD.

Then again Doing Business is the worse clowns at the World Bank who, when they are not busy pulling numbers out of a hat for propaganda purposes, are witch-hunting.

Re: We're # 1 (Switzerland tops World Competitiveness Ranking)

This is from INSEAD, which cannot be suspected of being partly pro-Switzerland (at least relative to IMD): Geneva # 2, Zurich # 4 cities in the world for competitiveness. See p. 68.

Thanks for sharing it; I guess this report is more serious and overall impartial.
