US Drops a Spot in Competitiveness Rankings
September 27, 2011 Leave a comment
According to the a recently released report from the World Economic Forum, the United States fell one position to claim 5th place in the world competitiveness rankings. Some have attributed the US lag to its “economic vulnerabilities” as well as concerns regarding government inefficiency and trust in political actors.
Not all is bad on the competitiveness rankings front however. The Economist Intelligence Unit recently found that the United States was the world leader in technology competitiveness.
