As I tactfully alluded to in an earlier post, the recent trend of Saudi Arabia’s high rankings in various global competitiveness type rankings is absurd. Indeed, their latest rating of 13th in the world (top in the Middle East) in the World Bank’s ‘Ease of Doing Business‘ Survey is a classic example of their absurdly over-inflated placing.
Whilst I’m not sure that I’d legally want to suggest that the authors of these various polls and surveys are being bribed (though I allegedly wouldn’t be surprised) there remains the real question of just how they are so odds they are with reality. Answers on a postcard.
