ECO201 – Macroeconomics

Unit 1 Assignment: Progress, or Freedom?
Due: Sunday by 11:59 pm at the end of Unit 1.
What is economic progress? What is freedom?
Two research organizations rank countries by their economic competitiveness with quite
different results. Based on these rankings address the following questions;
 Provide a brief (one paragraph) overview of this week’s material.
 Why do they do reach different conclusions?
 Explain which research organization's ranking best describes the state of the world
economy. Include support from course materials to support your explanation.
One ranking comes from the World Economic Forum, http://www.weforum.org/
It describes itself as follows:
The World Economic Forum is an independent international organization committed to
improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic and other leaders of
society to shape global, regional and industry agendas. Incorporated as a not-for-profit
foundation in 1971, and headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, the Forum is tied to no
political, partisan or national interests.
The report on competitiveness is available at:
http://reports.weforum.org/global-competitiveness-report-2014-2015/
Another ranking, described in the textbook comes from the Heritage Foundation
http://www.heritage.org/
It describes itself as follows:
Founded in 1973, The Heritage Foundation is a research and educational institute - a think
tank - whose mission is to formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the
principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American
values, and a strong national defense.
The report is available at:
http://www.heritage.org/index/Default.aspx
