A recent Country Report on Guyana published by the London-based Economic Intelligence Unit (EIU) points to an uneasy relationship between the government and the private sector despite a net increase in private investment in the country’s economy last year. The April 2010 EIU Country Report says that the failure by the private sector, up until the publication of the report, to issue “a formal reaction” to the country’s 2010 budget signals “a rising level of frustration with government policy and the widespread perception that criticism of the authorities will result in the loss of fiscal ...

We the innocent, led by the unknown, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful! We have done so much with so little, so we are now qualified to do anything with nothing! –Finance Minister MINISTER OF Finance, Dr. Ashni Singh said yesterday it is clear that the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU)’s coverage on Guyana has been hijacked by partisan domestic political operatives. His observation was in response to both an article and the editorial in the June 25, 2010 edition of the Stabroek News on the EIU’s latest report on Guyana. Minister Singh went on to say that it was most unfortunate that the EIU, a Unit ... market research, surveys and trends
When Chung Un-Chan speaks of a nation once "paralyzed by anxiety and uncertainty," it's hard to imagine that the prime minister of South Korea is indeed referring to his own country. Exuding pride and confidence today, Korea -- as Chung is also quick to note -- is among the world's largest economies. It's also at the forefront of today's global economic recovery, making one of the strongest rebounds registered by any member of the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Growth bounced back in the third quarter of last year while this year, GDP is predicted to grow 5.8% followed ... market research, surveys and trends

The government is accustomed to trying to bully its opponents, vilifying them in sometimes quite unparliamentary terms. The tactics in most instances are intended to inhibit expression, if not actually muzzle anyone tempted to voice contrary opinions. By and large in the past that absolutist approach has been reserved for local critics alone, but now, it seems, it is being extended to the outside world as well. It is clear that the ruling party is already in full election mode – general elections, that is, since not a whisper is being heard about local government polls – which is a time when obloquy directed at detractors always ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
The Bank of Guyana and the Ministry of Finance would have had immediate access to the Economic Intelligence Unit (EIU) April 2010 Guyana Country Report. Since these reports are considered mandatory reading for policymakers across the world, it is a reasonable assumption that the Minister of Finance, Dr Ashni Singh and Rajendra Rampersaud of the Bank of Guyana would have read the report some time ago. If they had concerns with its methodology or contents they kept these quiet. But suddenly, within days of the Stabroek News reporting on the report, the doors of hell are opened wide. Mr Rampersaud pronounces authoritatively on ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
I found this article in which the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) is reported as having stated Sweden is the most democratic nation in the world. Do people living in Sweden agree with that statement? I have never lived in or even visited Sweden, so I wouldn't know. http://www.thelocal.se/5578/20061122/ Other questions: What is the normal, day to day life of an average Swedish person like? What are the pros and cons to living in Sweden? How diverse is the population in Sweden in regards to race and religion? Is outward racism, sexism, homophobia or bigotry at all prevalent in Sweden? Is there much patriotism amongst ...
