via Compare your country by OECD.

This is a fantastic interactive tool to look at your country over time and compare it to other G20 countries.

Key variables are:

  • Agriculture
  • Education
  • Health
  • Poverty & Inequality
  • Taxation
  • Development
  • Employment
  • Migration
  • Quality of Life
  • Trade
  • Economic Projections
  • Environment
  • Pensions
  • Regulation

For example, I looked at Regulation and there are two variables mentioned, when you press the interactive key:

  • Regulation of Product Markets
  • Restrictions on Trade & Services

If I press the link again, I find that:

Amongst OECD countries, the Netherlands has the most competition-friendly regulatory environment, with the lowest overall score for regulation of total economy. The Netherlands is followed by the UK, Austria & Germany.

Why don’t you have a go. Focus perhaps on France, Italy, Spain, Cyprus, Greece, Portugal, Ireland or the UK, if you prefer.   Let me know if there are any surprises or does the data just confirm your views?
