Summary This valuable book shows how to interpret country performance and provides the practicing investor with sufficient background on economic principles, so that they better understand how to interpret country summaries as they appear in business periodicals and other media. Other books set out the criteria used in evaluating country risk and economic performance, but often do not clarify why particular elements of the analysis are important. Country Analysis explains the reasoning behind those criteria, without the need for a sophisticated understanding of economics or mathematics
