The Access Index™ developed by SRI International at FedEx’s request provides insights into the power and importance of the concept of access at the national level. There are a host of studies that have quantified, ranked, and compared countries based on their level of globalization, economic freedom, competitiveness, and other factors. However, because the concept of “access” does not fit into traditional ways of thinking about how society advances, thus far few attempts have been made to quantify access or to measure its impacts comprehensively.
