New York, NY (PRWEB) November 13, 2013
RateAPlace.com (http://rateaplace.com), a new player on the market of online ratings and reviews, offers a unique service – country reviews. In contrast to the widest variety of products and businesses being rated and reviewed today on the Internet, Rate A Place is focused on finding the best and worst places to live, work, and visit around the world. Besides the ability to review countries, visitors can also review states, counties, cities, and even neighborhoods.
While all places on Rate A Place can be rated with a quick, one-line rating, visitors have the option of leaving a detailed rating based on multiple criteria. All types of places on the website can be rated based on four common factors: safety, economy, infrastructure, and affordability. Countries and states share an additional factor – civil liberties. States, counties, cities, and neighborhoods can also be rated based on the quality of recreation, while cities and neighborhoods have one extra criterion - entertainment.
"Today's world is a rapidly changing place, where former communist and developing countries now compete with the most prosperous nations for economic dominance," says Nina Davidov, co-founder of Rate A Place. "We are observing a spectacular growth in personal and corporate wealth, as well as in the infrastructure in such countries as Russia and China. Yet civil liberties in those countries are still of enormous concern for their citizens and the world community as a whole. We are confident that our website is the right platform for determining the best and worst countries to live and work in, and we may eventually see a healthy competition among nations to become the best-rated place on Earth," added Mrs. Davidov.
So far, there is only a handful of reviews on the website, but the project's founders are optimistic that people from all over the world will flock in to share their opinion of countries they have lived, worked in, or just visited.
"We rely on building a world-wide community of intelligent, honest people who can make a fair assessment of their own country and enjoy the same from other members," said Nina Davidov. "Since we are not making any money out of this service, the community's response will be crucial to keep it going."
