Forbes writes:

“Forbes determined the Best Countries for Business by grading 145 nations on 11 different factors: property rights, innovation, taxes, technology, corruption, freedom (personal, trade and monetary), red tape, investor protection and stock market performance. The data came from published reports from Freedom House, Heritage Foundation, Property Rights Alliance, Transparency International, World Bank and World Economic Forum.”

Nick O’Neill dissects how Forbes was able to outdo the New York Times by sexing up a headline. “How Companies Learn Your Secrets” just didn’t set the internet alight like “How Target Figured Out A Teen Girl Was Pregnant Before Her Father Did”.

As of the writing of this story, the New York Times article has 60 likes and shares on Facebook versus 12,902 which the Forbes article has. The Forbes article also has a mind boggling 680,000 page views, a number that can literally make a writer’s career.
