As a stray thought, I was thinking about how similar Australia and Canada were, and how both have very successful Constitutional models which has lead to very well-written governmental programs. For example, Australia has managed to move to a very free market economy without getting the vast divides between rich and poor that exists in other free market economies like Hong Kong, Singapore and the US. So I wondered… how does Canada fare on the economic freedom list? I know that one is managed by the Wall St Journal and you know what?

Canada now beats the US in economic freedom! Hahahahahaha I bet a lot of people in both countries would be terribly shocked to hear that. hahahaha.

I think the US was like fifth when I last checked it. The reason is though America has very low levels of regulation in some areas, other areas are vastly overregulated so that on average America has higher regulation than other countries like Australia and Ireland.
