Economic freedom index

The Cato Institute ranks the nations of the world on the basis of various dimensions of economic freedom, ranked on a scale of 10.

Click here to view an interactive map showing the ranking on the Cato website. (Tried to get a screenshot, unsuccessfully)

In 2007, the top five ranks were:

1. Hong Kong (Score - 8.9/10)
2. Singapore - 8.8
3. New Zealand - 8.5
4. Switzerland - 8.3
5. Canada - 8.1

Personally, I am surprised to see Canada there. My friends from the American right had me convinced that Canada was a socialist paradise :D
