One of the things that I watch closely each year is the United States’s rating as to economic freedom. There are two main annually released studies – one by the Heritage Foundation and the Wall Street Journal and the other by the Fraser and Cato Institutes. Both studies have been showing the US falling. But while the Heritage/Wall Street Journal study has the U.S. at 10, the new Fraser/Cato study has it at 18. That is simply awful.
Please go read the whole thing. Your prosperity depends on fixing this problem.
