America Now Just 'Mostly Free' (Heritage Foundation's Index of Economic Freedom)

Full Disclosure: I was an intern at the Heritage Foundation a few years back. I had no direct involvement in the ranking of countries in the Index of Economic Freedom, though I did use information from the index in an article that was published regarding Free Economies Help Women.


  1. hey i wrote my first blog post about the heritage foundation.

    you guys have an interesting conception of "freedom"

  2. @ian Dubrowsky - "Interesting"? Care to elaborate on that point.

    You should also feel free to link to your post you are referring to in your comments. I believe this post is the one you are referring to since you only have two thus far and the first one was a test, but please correct me if I am wrong.
