The Do­ing Busi­ness re­port, which was started in 2003, has be­come one of the key ways in which the World Bank and other ob­servers gauge the busi­ness cli­mate in de­vel­op­ing coun­tries. Ninth in a se­ries of an­nual re­ports com­par­ing busi­ness reg­u­la­tions in 183 economies, Do­ing Busi­ness 2012 mea­sures reg­u­la­tions af­fect­ing 11 ar­eas of ev­ery­day busi­ness ac­tiv­ity: start­ing a busi­ness, deal­ing with con­struc­tion per­mits, em­ploy­ing work­ers, reg­is­ter­ing prop­erty, get­ting credit, pro­tect­ing in­vestors, pay­ing taxes, trad­ing across borders, en­forc­ing con­tracts, clos­ing a busi­ness, and get­ting electricity. A fun­da­men­tal premise of Do­ing Busi­ness is that eco­nomic ac­tiv­ity re­quires good rules that are trans­par­ent and ac­ces­si­ble to all. Such reg­u­la­tions should be ef­fi­cient, strik­ing a bal­ance be­tween safe­guard­ing some im­por­tant as­pects of the busi­ness en­vi­ron­ment and avoid­ing dis­tor­tions that im­pose un­rea­son­able costs on busi­nesses.
