The interconnections between the different vectors of globalization are crucial to analyze in depth the state of globalization by country, understanding its strengths, weaknesses, risks and opportunities and how these vectors can impact GDP performance.

a) For each country, analyze their current GII index (Global Innovation Index) discovering their fundamental differences and similarities between them. (400 words, 25 points)
b) For each country, analyze their openness economy level (Doing Business Index) finding the relationships with section “a”. (400 words, 25 points)
c) For each country, analyze their GDP evolution during the past 10 years using The Word Bank/ GDP data. Explore with a critical point of view, the relationship between these countries’ GDP performance with section “a” and “b”. (700 words, 50 points)
For your analysis use the latest update of these data and include some pictures related to these countries.
