How do you measure globalization? And who benefits the most from it? Those are two of the main questions we asked ourselves when we presented our updated Globalization Report 2016 at the end of last year. The report analyses the data from a total of 42 countries between the years of 1990 and 2014. Countries are ranked on their level of globalization and regression analysis is used to calculate how much globalization affected each nation’s overall growth path. At the end we were able to calculate for each country, how much additional money its economy had been able to generate over the past 14 years, due to that country opening up to the rest of the world, simply put: the net benefit of globalization.


We wanted to continue sharing our findings with you, our audience, so we decided to make a video about it. Just click on the player above and learn more about the effects of globalization. Some of the results might surprise you.
