ESCAPE index: Mapping how markets emerge

As the world economy continues to recover from the after-shocks of the global financial crisis, this is a good time to think about how countries can ‘escape’ from their current position and move into a higher economic gear.
Our ESCAPE index provides a holistic measure of a country’s performance and progress over time.

Our new ESCAPE index provides a holistic measure of how a country is performing on five key dimensions. It tracks how shifts in global economic power mean some countries previously regarded as emerging markets are escaping, or close to escaping, from the middle-income trap and graduating to become full members of the advanced economy club.
