Did you know that Canada ranks #1 in the Global Competitiveness Report of having the lowest incidence of malaria? Not a surprise.
Moncton REALTOR®, Larry Estabrooks, recently drew my attention to this report put out by the World Economic Forum. In it, Canada ranked 10th overall in terms of Global Competitiveness which is no small feat but could still be a little better. Mundane albeit interesting reading. But there’s an important golden nugget in the report that bears notice. Canada ranked #1 in the world with respect to stability of its banks.
In these times of global financial upheaval, we see governments loading billions of dollars into the banking system world-wide. Certainly in my lifetime, and I’m 48, I’ve never quite seen anything like it. Like you and everyone else, I wonder where this will lead and if the world will ever be quite the same. I can say though, that I’m comforted to know that our banking system is more stable than any other in the world.
Incidentally, we rank 6th in the world for internet users. So log on and check out the report if you feel like it. Or play a game. Or do some online banking.
