About the site
TheGlobalEconomy.com is for people who are interested in the world economy. Our global economy guide and glossary, intended for a broad audience of non-experts, have brief and simple articles explaining key concepts and relationships.

The site also makes use of a large number of carefully selected indicators on key socio-economic issues. Users can compare countries over time, look at global, continental, and regional rankings, and track how a given indicator evolves over time in a country.

All of the data presented on the website are available for download for those interested in digging deeper into the series. We make sure that the data are up-to-date, clean, collated, and well documented.
