What Economic Crisis? 8 Countries Doing Just Fine

More slideshows

As the global economy continues to suffer a crisis of confidence in the wake of the American credit downgrade and the potential collapse of the euro currency, most countries are adjusting their economic forecasts downward. Even high-flying Germany is now threatening to slump back into recession. But not all countries are licking their wounds. Here, TNR presents a list of some of the few countries that have managed to weather the economic storm.

Just because North Korea SAYS they're doing "just fine", doesn't mean they belong on the list. I'm sure there's a bunch of African nation dictators also willing to say they're "just fine" -- why didn't they make the list?

To list a starving, barely surviving dictatorship as "just fine" despite all evidence to the contrary is amazingly inept.

thunderroad - let me add "starving" North Korea?????? I do not know where these TNR interns got their info, but only Canada and Norway really belong on this list. Singapore is thriving. So is Finland. India. Chile. Maybe Indonesia. Brazil is facing some serious bumps to the point of new protective trade barriers, but they benefit from prescient energy independence, including the deepwater offshore oil drilling that Obama has constrained in the Gulf. Germany may have just stumbled into slow growth, but they are bailing out most of the EU, and never had a housing bubble. where do these interns learn how to research?
