IMD has just released the 2014 edition of the World Competitiveness Yearbook. It is available to students, staff and faculty at the University of Calgary in print format and online.
This is an excellent resource for research in International Business. The Yearbook assesses the competitiveness of 60 countries based on 338 criteria and summarizes strengths and weaknesses of each economy.
What other resources are available for U of C students researching the field of International Business?

- Relevant books and databases
