The World Bank - "Doing Business"

I was prompted to dig deeper into "Doing Business" here, an effort under the World Bank. Ratings on 181 countries showing rankings such as "Ease of doing business", "Dealing with construction permits", "Protecting investors", "Paying taxes", etc. See the complete list here.

The Economist quotes Robert Litan, of the Kauffman Foundation, "... the World Bank may have done more good by compiling "Doing Business" than by lending much of the money that it has."
