IS IT getting better? Or is it getting worse? Many international institutions, organizations and foundations try to answer this simple question by composing different rankings and indexes. Thus people know whether their country is more democratic as a neighbour one, how much of economic freedom we have comparing to last year, and so on…
Inspired by the new index of press freedom (by Reporters without borders ) I decided to have a short look at some known rankings. Once again, it is required to say that comparing results from different years is not 100% legitimate since the methodology often changes over time. But still, I am convinced there is a clear trend visible.
I have composed a table with two value columns. The first one is a raning from tha last evaluated period of the government of Dzurinda, marked as “blue”. The second column consists of the latest values, having social democrats in office (marked as “orange”). Taking into consideration five reputable rankings, Mr. Fico’s social democrats sucked.
See the table below.
