    We're so used to moaning about how bad things are here that we forget that there are places that are worse...

    In 2019 South Africa ranks as the 60th MOST COMPETITIVE out of 138 countries, an improvement of 7 places over 2018 where we were placed 67th out of 144 countries. Source: WEF Global Competitiveness Report.
    While happily admitting my maths is dodgy, isn't this an actual improvement of 1 place?
    If we now ranked 60th out 0f 144, sure, 7 is correct, but as there are 6 LESS countries in the group, that shows a gain of 1 place in my head.

    Does my head need calibrating?

    For maths.... I know about the bearing knock.

    Your conclusion is only correct if all 7 countries that are now left out of the analysis were ahead of us in 2018.
