World Bank vs ... Chile?

The World Bank repeatedly changed the methodology of one of its flagship economic reports over several years in ways it now says were unfair and misleading.

The World Bank’s chief economist, Paul Romer, told The Wall Street Journal on Friday he would correct and recalculate national rankings of business competitiveness in the report called “Doing Business” going back at least four years.

The revisions could be particularly relevant to Chile, whose standings in the rankings have been especially volatile in recent years and potentially tainted by the political motivations of World Bank staff, Mr. Romer said.

From what I've followed, Chile is doing pretty good economically. Modern economy, solid infrastructure, high standard of living, lots of income from copper and lithium sales. They invest in education and that Start Up Chile project to attract tech companies.

Their main expense I think is earthquake repairs since they get a lot of earthquakes.

Current President is a Marxist French woman.
