In Defense of Global Capitalism

Extrait du livre « In Defense of Global Capitalism » de Johan Norberg:

"Basically, what I believe in is neither capitalism nor globalization. I believe in man’s capacity for achieving great things and in the combined force resulting from encounters and exchanges.

I plead for greater liberty and a more open world because it provides a setting which liberates individuals and their creativity as no other system can. It spurs the dynamism which has led to human, economic, scientific, and technical advances, and which will continue to do so.

Believing in capitalism does not mean believing in growth, the economy, or efficiency. Desirable as these may be, these are only the results. Belief in capitalism is, fundamentally, belief in mankind."

Pour le Royaume-Unis, l'Australie, la Nouvelle-Zélande et l'Allemagne: en plus du régime public universel, les gens sont libres d'avoir une assurance privée pour se faire traiter dans des établissements privés.

Les États-Unis et le Canada représentent les 2 extrêmes. Dans plusieurs situations, l'extrême américain semble préférable.

OECD Regions at a Glance 2007

Patent statistics provide a measure of innovation, as they reflect the inventive performance of countries, regions and firms. The geographic distribution of patents therefore indicates the level of diffusion of technology and knowledge across regions.

Predominantly urban regions appear to provide the most fertile ground for innovative activity. In 2003, the correlation between patents and population in urban regions was positive in all OECD countries. It was particularly pronounced in the Netherlands (0.92), Denmark (0.86), and Portugal (0.81).

Although somewhat less so, intermediate regions also make a noteworthy contribution to patent activity. In 10 out of 21 OECD countries the correlation between patents and population in intermediate regions was positive.

Finally the correlation between patent activity and population in rural regions was negative in all OECD countries except Korea (0.77), the Czech Republic (0.37) and Poland (0.01). The negative correlation was particularly pronounced in Canada (–0.90), the United Kingdom (–0.76) and Sweden (–0.74).
