    The Heritage Foundation released its survey of economic freedom. What's most interesting - and unsurprising - is the graph below; there is a clear relation between economic freedom and the wealth of a country's citizens.

    The top countries are as follows

    Hong Kong 1 [1.28]
    Singapore 2 [1.56]
    Ireland 3 [1.58]
    Luxembourg 4 [1.60]
    United Kingdom 5 [1.74]
    Iceland 5 [1.74]
    Estonia 7 [1.75]
    Denmark 8 [1.78]
    United States 9 [1.84]
    Australia 9 [1.84]
    New Zealand 9 [1.84]
    Canada 12 [1.85]
    Finland 12 [1.85]
