Global Competitiveness Report 2012-2013 - Jennifer Blanke

Jennifer Blanke, Lead Economist, Senior Director and Head of the Global Competitiveness Network at the World Economic Forum, presents this year's findings in The Global Competitiveness Report. The Global Competitiveness Report's competitiveness ranking is based on the Global Competitiveness Index (GCI), which was first developed for the World Economic Forum by Sala-i-Martin, a co-author of this year's report, in 2004. Defining competitiveness asthe set of institutions, policies and factors that determine the level of productivity of a country, GCI scores are calculated by drawing together public and private data around 12 key categories -- the pillars of competitiveness -- that together make up a comprehensive picture of a country's competitiveness.
