Elite Quality Report 2022

Country Scores and Global Rankings

Tomas Casas i Klett, Guido Cozzi (ed.)

The Elite Quality Index (EQx) aims to produce innovative and evidence-based insights on sustainable value creation and national elite quality around the world. Through research projects and the EQx partner network, we seek to identify the causes of economic growth and human development, as well as the factors behind the rise and fall of nations and organizations. At a time of global disruption, the original ideas and frameworks included in this report provide an alternative understanding of public and policy debates about the future direction of the political economy. The ultimate aim is to identify and initiate ways to transform business models from Value Extraction to Value Creation. To this end, we wish to encourage interna-tional dialogue across generations, social groups, elites and non-elites.

We produce novel tools for knowledge dissemination in a variety of educational formats, and offer value-oriented, inclusive narratives for societies.
