    Link: Country Freedom Ranking - Where your country stand? Unless you`re in Australia, your country didn`t even make Top 5.

    "Economic Freedom" as in fewer goverment regulations?
    Not really what I think of with the word "Freedom".
    also
    Hong Kong is not a country.

    "Unless you`re in Australia, your country didn`t even make Top 5."

    I`ll let the submitter find out what is wrong with that sentence.

    What so there are zero IABers from the other four? Or do they not count because they are smaller than Canada or the US?

    With this definition of freedom, a brutal tyranny in which everyone must proclaim their devotion to the glorious dictator every hour on the hour or be killed could rank as the most free country in the world. It`s so wrong that it`s silly.

    Funny you should mention Austrialia, i just came across this a few hours ago. The censorship laws in Australia are bizarre and intrusive. But on the bright side you can sell those counterfeit gucci bags with out fear of prosecution you just have to put up with draconian censorship laws of your goverment.

    No mention in this list of Personal Freedoms such as gun ownership and freedom of speech, which are very important rights.

    Personally I believe America should be in the top 5, but the list does factor in the recent impact of Obama`s failed policies.

    Just so we`re all on the same page here: This is a product of The Heritage Foundation, one of the world`s most far-right conservative "think tanks" (i.e., propaganda mills).

    No doubt the experts behind this ranking would move the USA to the #1 spot if only we could outlaw all unions and organized labor, abolish the minimum wage, repeal all antitrust laws, and defund the EPA, with all its burdensome laws surrounding the disposal of toxic wastes.

    So freedom to be a rich arsehole. Yay.......

    No mention of actual freedom. Just the privileged of the wealthy.

    Economic "freedom" isn`t a right. The only people who espouse that point are greedy rich people looking solely after there own interests.

    Economic freedom is not the same thing as personal freedom! Sure, trade may be "free" in Singapore, where women have to dress modestly in public and you get caned for spitting your gum out onto the sidewalk!

    "Where your country stand? Unless you`re in Australia, your country didn`t even make Top 5."?

    WTF?? That doesn`t even make sense. I`m from NZ and I am sure there are other IAB`ers from the other 3.

    I`d have to say, that`s about right. What I don`t understand, though, is how did North Korea manage to score a 1? It must be like the I-A-B rating system where 1 is the lowest possible score.
