Investment vs. innovation
 
This is a remarkable analysis about the most innovative countries ranked by World Bank income group. Switzerland, with its second highest GDP per capita globally, is at the top of the list. However, in the last years, the biggest moves up in this ranking have been made by some Asian countries, like China, Vietnam, India and the Philippines.
