Summary/Abstract: This paper introduces the Economic Sovereignty Index (ESI), which is a numerical measure of economic sovereignty (ES). Economic sovereignty of an economic entity (especially a state) means that it possesses a permanent ability to follow its own path in the face of relatively rigid links with other entities under potentially worsening economic conditions. This sovereignty rests on three pillars: the lack of the economy’s dependence on other economies, the ability of the economy to make others dependent on it and the inner strength of the economy.
