Featured Article: Openness and productivity of the Swiss economy


New Content Item​​​​​​​This article, by Reto Föllmi, Angela Fuest, Philipp an de Meulen, Martin Micheli, Torsten Schmidt and Lina Zwick, analyses the connection between openness and economic performance in Switzerland. Considering different dimensions of openness, the article shows that the Swiss economy is classified as relatively open. Nevertheless, there still is potential to further increase international integration, particularly through deregulation in the services sector.
