U.S. Economy Slips In World Ranking ~ A Lot

The World Economic Forum has released its 2006-2007 Global Competitiveness Report. (Title bar.)

According to it, countries with (I can't help noting) universal healthcare, liberal policies regarding financing of higher education, & all the things conservatives tell us we can't afford) seem to be doing better then we are.

Must be a vast liberal conspiracy & partisan-hacks organization hell-bent on making us look bad.

"Finland and Sweden are the world’s most competitive economies according to The Global Competitiveness Report 2006-2007, released by the World Economic Forum on 26 September 2006. Denmark, Singapore, the United States, Japan, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom complete the top ten list, but the United States shows the most pronounced drop, falling from first to sixth.

"The rankings are drawn from a combination of publicly available hard data and the results of the Executive Opinion Survey, a comprehensive annual survey conducted by the World Economic Forum, together with its network of Partner Institutes (leading research institutes and business organizations) in the countries covered by the Report. This year, over 11,000 business leaders were polled in a record 125 economies worldwide."
