  1. So how is the Global Competitiveness Index calculated and what does this say about the economy, as I see that Canada has slipped down one place too?

  2. Hi aaron,

    I do a search in the World Economic Forum website and find some of the criteria that determine the Global Competitiveness Index is calculated and I posted it in the blog as well at How The Global Competitiveness Index is Calculated?
