An important part of a country risk analysis is the assessment of the economic indicators of a country. How are these indicators defined? What is their connection with country risk? When is a value considered risky?
The book “Trading Economics: A Guide to Economic Statistics for Practitioners and Students” by Trevor Williams and Victoria Turton could be helpful with interpreting indicators. It has chapters on economic growth, the labour market and inflation. It further discusses indicators that refer to fiscal policy, monetary policy and the foreign trade position of countries.
The book is particularly about the first question and financial market analysis. If you are interested in answers to the second and third answer (i.e. interpreting indicators as a country risk analyst), please have a look at the posts below.
