    The fact that Norway is showing up purple (91+) when it’s listed at no. 20 (82.83) is killing me. WHY???

      That if a larger economy get’s so much as a sneeze, Ireland’s has a stroke and massive cardiac arrest?

      That we completely abandoned any attempts to encourage indigenous industry ‘coz tax breaks for foreigners’ are easier and are thus totally on the hook to our multinational sugardaddies?

    This is what it’s measured on…
    The KOF Index of Globalization measures the three main dimensions of globalization:

    economic
    social
    and political.

    In addition to three indices measuring these dimensions, we calculate an overall index of globalization and sub-indices referring to

    actual economic flows
    economic restrictions
    data on information flows
    data on personal contact
    and data on cultural proximity.
