U.S. Drops in Global Competitiveness Ranking

U.S. Drops in Global Competitiveness Ranking

The United States has dropped in a global ranking of national competitiveness, reports Jim Puzzanghera of the Los Angeles Times.  The drop comes as a competitive presidential election is prompting Americans to consider whether they are better off than they were four years ago.

The U.S. actually improved its score from last year, but other countries, like the Netherlands and Germany, improved more.  Holding the U.S. back was the economic environment, including the nation’s budget deficit, the national debt, and its credit rating.
