In an exclusive interview with LIGNET, Ambassador Terry Miller, director of the Center for International Trade and Economics at the Heritage Foundation, said his organization’s new “2013 Index of Economic Freedom” points to trouble on the horizon for economic freedom in many countries, including India and China. However, Ambassador Miller was especially concerned about economic freedom in the United States and said he believes the U.S. is no longer promoting economic freedom around the world.
Miller discussed with LIGNET the newly-released 2013 Index of Economic Freedom which tracks the performance of 185 countries around the world on their regulatory burden, openness to trade and investment, respect for limited government, business environment, rule of law, respect for property rights, corruption and other metrics that reveal the state of their economies.
