In 2011, the international accounting firm Ernst & Young ranked Singapore third on its Globalization Index behind Hong Kong and Ireland. This measurement calculates the extent of global economic engagement relative to the gross domestic product of the sixty major economies of the world. There are various indices of globalization—that is, economic integration, technological connectivity, and political interaction of nations—and Singapore consistently stands at or near the top of such lists. Prior to the turmoil in the world economy that began in 2008, the small nation had ranked first on one globalization index for four out of seven years, and Singapore continues to be one of the global economy’s principal trading hubs.
