Discussion Questions

1. Do you think it is better to live in a country with more economic freedom? Why or why not?

2. Did you expect the United States to be ranked higher or lower than # 8 on the list of countries with the highest economic freedom? How do you feel about its ranking?

3. Do you believe that government intervention helps or hinders a private business' development and growth? Why or why not? Can you compare some of the higher ranking countries to the lowest ranked ones to help explain your answer? What about comparing even the highest ranking countries to the United States at #8?
