Complexity Outlook

Description

complexity_outlook() computes the Complexity Outlook Index and the Complexity Outlook Gain.

Usage

complexity_outlook(balassa_index, proximity_product, complexity_index_product)

Arguments

balassa_index

(Type: dgCMatrix) the output from balassa_index()) or an equivalent arrangement.

proximity_product

(Type: dgCMatrix) the output from proximity()) or an equivalent arrangement.

complexity_index_product

(Type: numeric) the output from complexity_measures()) or an equivalent arrangement.

Details

The current implementation follows (Hausmann et al. 2014) to measure unexploited export oppportunities.

Value

A list of two named numeric vectors.
