The World Bank is an international financial institution that provides loans to developing countries for capital programs. The World Bank Group has set goals for the world, e.g. promote shared prosperity by fostering the income growth of the bottom 40% for every country. According to its Articles of Agreement, all its decisions must be guided by a commitment to the promotion of foreign investment and international trade and to the facilitation of capital investment. This dashboard provides GDP historical data by countries with ratings and dynamics.
GDP is the single most commonly referenced figure to cover the entirety of a national economy and the trajectory it is on in a single statistic. Measured trends in GDP for a single country or comparisons among peer countries are often called out in the popular press, sometimes with alarmist tones that can make one wonder why or how this single data point has taken on such importance. This is particularly the case in a world increasingly focused on measuring well-being, governance, and environmental and natural resource depletion, all of which are explicitly or implicitly excluded from standard GDP measures.
This dashboard supplies financial GDP data and countries' economy growth rates for the last half of the century. The World Bank answers at length about countries current economy situation providing combined table and international GDP rating.
