North America
Competitiveness Scorecard

Globalization has reshaped the world economy. North America is a powerful global competitor, although our relative position is slipping as deficits pile up in the U.S. and our shared efforts to strengthen Mexico’s institutions are only beginning to have their impact.

Why Create a Scorecard?

The George W. Bush Institute created the North America Competitiveness Scorecard as a tool to compare the competitive position of the United States, Canada, and Mexico, as a region, relative to other major economic regions and countries with large economies. The Scorecard provides the opportunity to see at a glance how well North America—country by country and altogether—is performing in the global economy.

We hope the results will help focus policy attention on ways that the North American partners can work together to compete more effectively in the global marketplace. The Scorecard enables users to compare any countries they wish, look at economic data over time, and examine the economic performance of entire regions.
