Ranking the States for Economic and Personal Freedom

“Here are the full rankings from the newly released Freedom in the 50 States from the Mercatus Center, showing North Dakota as the state with the most freedom, with South Dakota (#2), Tennessee (#3), New Hampshire (#4), and Oklahoma (#5) also deserving praise for high scores.  What makes Freedom in the 50 States so interesting is that you can mix and match variables based on your own preferences.  I checked the ‘fiscal’ and ‘tax burden’ categories, and South Dakota (no state income tax!) jumped to #1 for both of those measures.  You won’t be surprised to learn that New York is the worst state, not only overall, but also for various fiscal policy measures.”
