Abstract: This chapter develops a conceptual and methodological framework for the analysis and measurement of economic resilience. The working definition of economic resilience adopted in this chapter is the "nurtured" ability of an economy to recover from or adjust to the effects of adverse shocks to which it may be inherently exposed. This concept is used to provide an explanation as to why a number of inherently vulnerable countries have attained relatively high levels of GDP per capita. The chapter also presents a tentative approach aimed at developing an index of economic resilience covering four aspects namely macroeconomic stability, micro economic market efficiency, good governance and social development.
