Abstract

Interdependencies – in time and in space – between (the most) different phenomena and processes, as well as entities (at global – national – local/regional – firm level) – characterize all the domains and levels of the society and humankind. The main idea and the general purpose of the paper is to measure and to compare in terms of a unique, definitive and comprehensive index – diachronically and synchronically – a country’s (national global) performance (the National Global Performance Index), especially and particularly for Romania, in order to position it properly among the other countries, on one hand, and to analyze dynamically its determinants, on the other hand
