World's Freest Economies
  • Pretty interesting site, although the information is somewhat sparse. It doesn't give any real indication of what effects a free market has on the economy.
  • Here's the source site. Unfortunately, due to bad coding, none of the individual country pages load up as linked. You'll have to change the URL in the form: http://cf.heritage.org/index2004test/country2.cfmcfm?id=Peru TO http://cf.heritage.org/index2004test/country2.cfm?id=Peru (remove the duplicate instance of cfm in the addressbar)
  • I find the whole "freest economy" thing rather vague as well--especially coupled with the "India really isn't as free an economy as other places...but invest in India!" Weird.
