This valuable book shows how to interpret country performance and provides the practicing investor with sufficient background on economic principles, so that they better understand how to interpret country summaries as they appear in business periodicals and other media.

Other books set out the criteria used in evaluating country risk and economic performance, but often do not clarify why particular elements of the analysis are important. Country Analysis explains the reasoning behind those criteria, without the need for a sophisticated understanding of economics or mathematics.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This is a welcome book. Rather than one more abstract treatise on economic theory, this volume clearly shows how to apply theory in order to evaluate the performance of a country. Country Analysis is a practical contribution to an exceedingly important area of understanding. Although intended for a U.S. audience, it is global in orientation, supplemented with political and cultural aspects of economic decisions. It is deserving of wide readership - Professor Paul W. Beamish, Ivey Business School, University of Western Ontario.

David Currie is one of those rare economists who combines good theory with real-world experience, and it shows in this refreshing work on 'Country Analysis.' He includes vital background to properly assessing countries to invest in, including the economic and political freedom indexes. Bravo! - Dr. Mark Skousen, Editor, Forecasts & Strategies
