Default Canada # 1 place to do business - US dropped to # 5

The Economist analysts rank Canada best in world, citing stability,
fresh air, low crime:

Can't agree more....

It is quite interesting that the Canadians are following some of this survey so closely, passionatily, and giving so much importance.
First, you need to quote original article from Economist to have credibilty, not this second hand article from the local paper that also could be highly biased.
Lastly, the article does not - per quote from the Vancouver's local paper - "rank Canada best in world". If the quotation inside the article is correct it ranks based based on "attractiveness to business of the globe's 60 most prosperous nations".
If a reaser knows something about these and similar surveys, you can see how much are often highly unrealistic.

Can't provide you with the direct link to the survey as you must be a
subscriber to get access - go to http://www.eiu.com/ and subscribe
first, or check daily here - http://www.economist.com/ - and pray that
it will be posted for free viewing.

Don't kill the messenger --- it is an interesting article, especially for those who are on this board to consider moving to Canada.

I find it very odd that when a survey has Canada on top then there must be a misquote or something wrong in the survey, but if Canada drops or comes out near the bottom then they jump all over Canada --- these people cannot stand the positive and dwell on the negative -- pathetic way to limp through life.

Can't quote this aritcle -- need the original? Give me a break.
Top 60 isn't enough ? Who not on the list would rank higher? There is a reason there is a top 60.

You say you find it interesting so many Canadians follow this survey passionately -- one person posted it as a reference -- not sure how all of the conclusions were drawn.

Sorry Canadius -- think you missed the boat on this one.

Whether Canada is #1 or not, what's a good business to put up in Canada, small and medium scale.

From what I gather in the posts re employment of immigrants in Canada, it seems these immigrants have to have Canadian education and enough Canadian work experience, to get employed in a job or position needing the training, skills and experience they already have.

So another option is to set up a business while accepting jobs where they are over qualified, and pay scale is not enough to enrol children in a good university in Canada, live above the poverty line, save for the future and send some back home.

Thanks for your response.
