This book examines the influences of various cultural factors on economic analyses that could be misrepresented by existing economic theories. The book's most significant contribution is the measuring of cultural diversity and bilateral similarity indexes of the existing 200 or more countries and regions, as well as to quantify their impacts on economic activities. This book also clarifies conditions under which cultural difference may not become a cause of misunderstanding and conflict, but a source of creativity and profitability for economic development.
