JOHN R. LaBAR – John R. LaBar has received a “Certificate of Appreciation” for his valuable contribution to the report “Doing Business 2015 – Going Beyond Efficiency”, which was launched by The World Bank on October 29th, 2014 with great success and extensive media coverage.
Doing Business 2015: Going Beyond Efficiency, a World Bank Group flagship publication, is the 12th in a series of annual reports measuring the regulations that enhance business activity and those that constrain it. Doing Business presents quantitative indicators on business regulations and the protection of property rights that can be compared across 189 economies—from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe—and over time.
Doing Business measures regulations affecting 11 areas of the life of a business. Ten of these areas are included in this year’s ranking on the ease of doing business: starting a business, dealing with construction permits, getting electricity, registering property, getting credit, protecting minority investors, paying taxes, trading across borders, enforcing contracts and resolving insolvency. Doing Business also measures labor market regulation, which is not included in this year’s ranking.
Data in Doing Business 2015 are current as of June 1, 2014. The indicators are used to analyze economic outcomes and identify what reforms of business regulation have worked, where and why. This year’s report introduces a notable expansion of several indicator sets and a change in the calculation of rankings.
Mr. LaBar has been mentioned among the contributors of the report in the “Contributors” section of the official website of “Doing Business”, as acknowledgement of his important contribution.
