Econ: World Governance Indicators

Teams will compare the World Governance Indicators score between their country and the United States. The Worldwide Governance Indicators (WGI) capture six key dimensions of governance Voice & Accountability, Political Stability and Lack of Violence, Government Effectiveness, Regulatory Quality, Rule of Law, and Control of Corruption. The Worldwide Governance Indicators offer a useful snapshot a country’s quality of governance. These indicators have been used by foreign aid donors such as the United States, who use the indicators to allocate aid packages of hundreds of millions of dollars.  They will also explore the relationship between investment rates and corruption. Is there a connection?
