The George W. Bush Institute Launches Scorecard on North America

November 5, 2015

DALLAS, Texas

On Wednesday, November 4, 2015, the Bush Institute launched a North America Scorecard to compare the competitive positions of the U.S., Canada, and Mexico in the global economy.  The Scorecard benchmarks North America’s performance in international rankings on issues like business climate, innovation, openness to trade and good governance against the performance of other major countries and trade groupings. 

The official Scorecard unveiling took place at the Bush Institute with President George W. Bush noting, “…The purpose of this gathering is to help instruct our peoples in all three countries about the benefits of working together in the face of protectionist and isolationist tendencies.  And our goal is to put forward sound policies.  I’m confident that the work we’re doing here will have a lasting effect...”  The event consisted of two panel sessions, including a presentation and demonstration of the Scorecard, discussion on North American competitiveness and steps North America should take to remain competitive in a global economy. 

This project is a part of the Bush Institute’s Economic Growth program, which is focused on advocating free market policies and an open global economy to strengthen growth and prosperity in the United States.  A stronger North America will bolster U.S. competitiveness in the global economy.  The Scorecard uses data collected from third party sources to assess North America relative to other major regional economies and countries with large economies.
