Index of Economic Freedom

Perhaps a bit heavy for a gloriously sunny Friday, but here’s an interesting index – Index of Economic Freedom – about our national performance on economic freedom, relative to other nations.

Looks like we’re moving in the wrong direction, which the Index sees as mostly resulting from high taxes and excessive government spending.

Fascinating to see even though the UK is 16th that Germany are 23rd, and France a lowly 64th.

One thought on “Index of Economic Freedom

  1. “Lowly”? It depends how you look at it…having a “free” economy appears to have led to the utter collapse of Western economies. A little regulation may have saved a lot heartache. One wonders how well the more regulated economies of France and Germany would be doing were they not tied to the basket cases of Greece, Portugal etc.
