The Harvard Atlas of Economic Complexity and the Decade of India

January 7, 2017

I find the Atlas of Economic Complexity very impressive and certainly worth exploring. Developed by the Center for International Development of Harvard University, the interactive Atlas application allows to explore import and export data of all counties on earth. Even more impressive, by clicking the “product feasibility” button, you get a chart with maps which products are feasible for the selected country, based on complexity and distance. You are even allowed to download and share the maps created.

Based on this indexes, the Harvard Center for International Development New Global Growth Projections “Predict the Decade of India” with a growing rate of nearly 7%, while for China “the researchers expect to face a continued slowdown to 4.3 percent growth annually to 2024.”
