Country rankings for trade, business, fiscal, monetary, financial, labor and investment freedoms I find this very interesting. I was not able to view their pages explaining their judging criteria, and no doubt because they are right wing champions of the free market, there will be points of disagreement. However from my European perspective, it is disquieting that we have so much variance within Europe where we are supposed to have a level economic playing field. Good to see an Islamic country, Bahrain, so far up the list at No. 16.
