Best Countries For Business

This week, after you’ve taken a deep dive into the micro details of daily life in America, make a macroeconomic leap into the world of global competition. In this issue, we present TIME’s inaugural “Best Countries for Business,” a special report we are producing with the World Economic Forum (WEF). “Best Countries for Business” offers a formidable combination of resources: the globe’s most prestigious business organization linked with the planet’s best journalists to report on the heated competition among nations for investment. Alex Perry and Zoe Eisenstein file from Africa on the disparate development of Mauritius and Angola. In Denmark, Justin Fox analyzes the country’s success amid high tax rates. Asia hand Kathleen Kingsbury examines China’s push to land R&D labs. Latin America expert Tim Padgett assesses the surprising economic strength of Argentina, Brazil and Chile. And business writer Barbara Kiviat explains the significance of the WEF’s country rankings. We are also launching on TIME.com an amazing Global Business section–a hub for up-to-the-minute business news, sorted by country. It features a comparison of WEF country rankings, videos from CEOs on business practices in their region and every global-business story the magazine has run. Please visit time.com/globalbusiness
