Dramatic Collapse of US Freedom Ranking Under Obamarx
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Thu, 2012-09-20 05:11
Folk here know I set little store by the indices for economic freedom touted by various think tanks, some of which have ludicrously awarded PLAB*-NZ gold medals in the past, but I've no doubt there are sound empirical reasons for the drop in America's place from 10th in 2011 (measuring data up to 2009) to 18th this year (up to 2010) in the Cato/Fraser rankings:
The reasons can no doubt be distilled into one term: "Obamarx," subsuming the avalanche of regulations, the mountains of debt, the war on coal and oil, the cronyism, the de facto nationalizations (including medicine), the rampaging Nanny Statism perpetrated by The Filth as part of his agenda to "fundamentally transform" America. PLAB-NZ is ranked third.
