This research is quantitative, cross-sectional, it is non-experimental and descriptive. It is quantitative because it provides numerical results. It is cross-sectional because it used economic indicators corresponding to the year 2010. It is non experimental because de source of data have not been manipulated and have been obtained from good qualified sources of information. It is descriptive because this research figures out why some countries like China and Russia are better prepared for resisting financial and economic disturbances that may happen in the future.
