Economic Freedom

"The economically freest societies are the most prosperous, and the most economically repressive societies are the poorest."
-Brussels Journal

Check out the Heritage Foundation Index of Economic Freedom.

"Wealth comes from the actions of people, not the actions of government, and the freer people are to direct their efforts to where they are most productive, the greater the wealth created."

"The countries with the most economic freedom also have higher rates of long-term economic growth and are more prosperous than are those with less economic freedom."
Of interest to me, is Estonia, which is ranked 7th. Apparently they have successfully implemented a flat tax system.
