Russia, G-8 Pariah

Kim Zigfeld’s latest article on the American Thinker website showed how Russia fails to measure up to the performance of its G-8 peers when measured on criteria such as slavery and university performance.

How does Russia do economically? The latest World Bank study of “Ease of Doing Business” shows that Russia’s performance is just as wretched. Here are the rankings:

USA #4
UK #10
Canada #19
Germany #21
Japan #27
France #38
Italy #65
Russia #92

Russia is one of only two G-8 nations not in the world’s top 40 for ease of doing business, and is the only G–8 nation not in the top 75 countries on that list.  Just as is the case when compared on slavery or university performance, Italy and Russia are keeping company together at the bottom of the list. No wonder there’s an infamous bromance between Vladimir Putin and Silvio Berlusconi!

One response to “Russia, G-8 Pariah

  1. Russia fails to measure up in oh-so-many categories, it is not even funny. It is embarrassing.

    Thanks for relentlessly searching for the facts.
