Freedom index

It’s interesting to note that these freedom indices often come up with wildly varying results, which in turn vary significantly from business climate indices (which in turn vary heavily amongst themselves). The methodologies after all are extremely arbitrary.

Also, states that often do well on taxes and regulations (MORE FREEDOM!) often have higher poverty rates, less educated populations, lower health quality, and higher crime rates.

You really can't have everything in life.

This is bologna. NJ at 49th!!! njDylan feels very free. A lot of the stats do not take into account the fact that NJ is unique in that it has some of the most dangerous cities and the safest cities in the whoel country mere miles away from eachother. So while, and this is a general statement, some rules are strict some places, they may not be in others. If New Jersey isn't free, I dont want to know what freedom is...
