ABSTRACT
The article presents the new standards used by the journal in its economic risk ratings. Inflation will be assessed against real gross domestic (GDP) product growth in order to determine whether it is caused by economic inactivity or stable business environment. Short-term ratings will identify current vulnerabilities. Risk ratings will be primarily based on volatility of growth, level of GDP per capita and dependence on external sources for commodities.
