Heritage Foundation rates many nations’ economies more free

“The world is economically freer today than it was a year ago, according to the 12th annual Index of Economic Freedom, released today by The Heritage Foundation and The Wall Street Journal—and that means greater prosperity for those countries that embrace open markets,” according to a Heritage Foundation press release. The United States ranked 11th, following Hong Kong, Singapore, Ireland, Luxembourg, Iceland, United Kingdom, Estonia, Denmark, Australia, and New Zealand. Canada ranked 12th. The index ranks countries according to their compliance with conservative preferences in economic policy.
