Hungary has the most stable economy amongst the 24 emerging countries ranked from Europe and Asia on the list of Eurasia Group, the world’s leader in risk analysis, the British business weekly The Economist reported in its Friday edition.
Based on the global political risk index prepared by Eurasia, South Korea and Poland follow Hungary, which scored 80 points out of 100. The index uses a range of qualitative and quantitative indicators to measure both the capacity of countries to withstand shocks and their susceptibility to internal crises. Pakistan comes bottom of the list, because of mounting political and security tensions, and Eurasia Group is not expecting things to improve. Nigeria and Iran also jostle at the foot of the table. But stability should not be confused with pluralism: China outranks South Africa, India and some other democracies. (Gazdasági Rádió)
