LIBERTY, PROSPERITY AND OPPORTUNITY are in decline thanks to President Barack Obama’s economic policies and inaction by Congress. That’s the verdict from the 22nd edition of the INDEX OF ECONOMIC FREEDOM, which THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION publishes annually in partnership with THE WALL STREET JOURNAL.
this year’s findings–based on factors such as government spending, regulations and the rule of law–include:
**The U.S has fallen from the 6th freest economy in the world, when President Barack Obama took office, to 11th place in 2016.
**With losses of economic freedom in eight of the past nine years, the U.S. has tied its worst score ever, wiping out a decade of progress.
**America’s declining score in the index is closely related to rapidly rising government spending, subsidies, and bailouts.
**YOU CAN DISCOVER ADDITIONAL INSIGHTS INTO THE DECLINE OF FREEDOM AN America, AND STUDY PRACTICALLY ANY NATION that interests you, by exploring the 2016 INDEX on line–where you’ll find economic freedom data for 186 countries, plus interactive maps and charts you can customize.
