Access is critically important to nations. Nations thrive or stagnate depending on their level of access to inputs (i.e., raw materials, machinery, and components, technology, finance, etc.) that supply their economies, as well as their level of access to markets for the goods and services they produce. This report is the fourth of a series that explores the nature, opportunities, and benefits generated by access, based on research and analysis conducted by SRI International and commissioned by FedEx Corporation. This report concentrates on nations as one of the three key beneficiaries of access, and it examines the opportunities that access provides for nations to improve their performance and future prospects.
