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 collectively—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 while negotiating an upgrade to their own framework for integration. The Scorecard enables users to compare any countries they wish, look at economic data over time, and examine the economic performance of entire regions. Regional comparisons will become more important going forward as countries pursue deeper economic integration within and across regions.
