"Dubai: IMD, a top-ranked global business school based in Switzerland, announced its annual world competitiveness ranking for 2014 in which the UAE retained its overall eighth position in the competitiveness ranking and topped in government efficiency.
As part of its ranking of 60 economies for 2014, the IMD World Competitiveness Centre also looks at perceptions of each country as a place to do business.
The US retains the No 1 spot in 2014, reflecting the resilience of its economy, better employment numbers, and its dominance in technology and infrastructure.
The UAE continued to be ranked above a number of developed economies such as Denmark, Norway, Netherlands, Australia and UK and regional peers like Qatar, which was ranked 19 in the global competitiveness ranking."

I actually logged on to see if anyone had posted about this - or to do so.

It's certainly an interesting conclusion.

Yeah I notice the adulation in the comments ; and looks like it is by folks from the SubContinent and Iran ...., never understood why some expat nationalities feel the need to do that.
