Nordic Globalization Barometer 2010

by Christian H.M. Ketels

Abstract

The 2010 Nordic Globalization Barometer, the third in this series, is again designed to serve as input to the discussions of the five Nordic Prime Ministers (representing Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden) at the Nordic Globalization Forum. In its first part, the Barometer tracks the evolution of the global competitiveness of the Nordic countries during and after the global crisis. In its second part, it focuses on the status and trends of coporate R&D activities in the Nordic countries as the competitive pressure from other parts of the world, like China, is growing. The report closes with a number of policy recommendations.

Keywords: Globalization; Competition; Research and Development; Policy; Financial Crisis; Denmark; Finland; Iceland; Norway; China;
