Businessweek has rated the countries best suited to profit from the economic recovery, based on findings from a business school in Switzerland. IMD business school surveyed economic, financial, social statistics from 58 countries. Results were then broken down into four categories: economic performance, government efficiency, business efficiency, and infrastructure.

According to the story, "IMD also added a 'debt stress test' that identified which countries have the highest debt levels relative to GDP and will need the most years to pay off those obligations."

So who ranked as the world's most competitive country?

Singapore. Two? Hong Kong. And U.S. runs out the top three. To see who made the number four spot go here.
