This said it well. Free markets, small government, low regulations and low taxes lead to prosperity. Big government with big government programs, regulations and high taxes (SOCIALISM) are a sure way to destroy a country's wealth and middle class. This is why Bernie Sanders and his beliefs are anathema to prosperity.

I'll just repeat my previous comment since this video was removed and reposted, the Index of Economic Freedom was created by Heritage and the Wall Street journal back in 1995 and is not peer reviewed by any reputable body. This means that, for all intents and purposes, this is purely bullshit until proven.

Do your homework before you believe anything anyone says. Especially when there is a possible agenda present.

You want more economic freedom, democracy, equality of opportunity, less corruption and smaller government? You want more White people.

I wonder if the "Council" of economic freedom within the Heritage Foundation are aware of the fact that the globally operated mega-banks of the world have collaborated closely with each other to impose a debt based monetary system – that is – all money being created as debt – a as a controlled wealth transfer mechanism, to keep THEM and not the people of the world, free.

Or maybe the prestigious Heritage Foundation is just doesn't think we know? I mean this is kinda old news now.

i don't know why most European countrys should have a bad labour freedom and how this freedom is measured. For me it seems as if it is an index for capitalistic states. only my opinion so far

When propaganda is masqueraded as fact. No doubt heritage has a hidden agenda–deregulate government. I guess the labor wars of the early 1900's were just in vain. We spit on our ancestors

According to the Human Freedom Index America is actually 20TH.

Heritage Foundation cries about the poverty in Bolivia but says nothing about Honduras's poverty that is much worse, presumably because Bolivia is ruled by socialists and Honduras is ruled by capitalists, lol. Extremely biased economic freedom "index" masqueraded as fact. How do you judge how economically free a nation is? Based off of how little labor regulations they have? This index seems to love Estonia which is a hellhole for workers' rights.

Economic freedom, the most subjective and useless data to prove the right wingers who have absolutely no idea what theyre saying.

America needs to stop taxing the shit out of its people. Too many hoops to jump through as well

To all of you U.S American leftist pieces of shit claiming that "people are happier in a social democrat system" NO WE ARE FUCKING NOT , WHO THE HELL TOLD YOU THAT?!??!?!?! Autistic Mexicans and Cubans that emigrate to the U.S ???? are you fucking kidding me? We here in Latin America are TIRED of leftist running our continent increasing goverment, taxes, regulations and isolating us from the world just so that our money (which is worth less and less at an incredibly dangerous pace) can first go through their hands before they redistribute it (which is something as despicable and immoral as it gets) with the old rethoric of social justice , the worse 2 things you can do to the poor is NOT insult them or disrespect them….Is to use them as weapons for an agenda and hide them under the carpet…both things that the socialdemocracy has been doing down here in South America for over 70 years and NOW we are dangerously close to Afrikan poverty.
And one more thing , i see a lot of you talking about labour laws… do realize that if i need a little help with my little coffee shop that i just opened a couple months ago and im willing to hire a dude and pay him 1000U$D per month for 5days/week , 5 hours/day and then the goverment comes in and says "no, that's slavery, you must pay him 1500U$D per month , 5d/w 5h/d" ….. then that fucks the worker over right??? because if i just can't afford it since maybe i don't have the capital or a bad month would result in bankruptcy , then im not gonna hire him at all , and he will be unemployed.
Capitalism and Freedom are the ONLY way to give the poor a good chance of getting out of poverty by themselves , out of pure merit….the problem is…once you've indoctrinated the poor to believe that they can't be better than they're and if they try they will be put through hell because they are poor so they should victimize and be lazy as a counter-attack ….. then how the fuck are these poors gonna get themselves out of poverty? they can't , now the goverment must intervene by fucking anyone that's not poor in the ass, bringing everyone down so that the ones that are at the bottom DON'T move up at all but feel like they're moving up.
You have to be responsible people…it's the only way.
greetings from Argentina , Berazategui.

So, some of the most free economies in the world are the social democracies in Scandinavia, countries which the heritage foundation hates?

Question for US citizens: Why are you idiots not happy when USA is ranked in the top because its not ranked #1 in everything (even bad things like obesity)? why not be happy about being top 10 or 20 in something?
