Brasil ainda lá embaixo no relatório de liberdade econômica:

Se alguém quiser dar uma olhada no resumo para entender porque o Brasil - mesmo tendo melhorado um pouco - ainda aparece lá embaixo no ranking, veja abaixo o que é o índice do Fraser Institute:
About the Economic Freedom Index Economic Freedom of the World measures the degree to which the policies and institutions of countries are supportive of economic freedom. The cornerstones of economic freedom are personal choice, voluntary exchange, freedom to compete, and security of privately owned property. The first Economic Freedom of the World Report, published in 1996, was the result of a decade of research by a team which included several Nobel Laureates and over 60 other leading scholars in a broad range of fields, from economics to political science, and from law to philosophy. This is the 9th edition of Economic Freedom of the World. This year’s publication ranks 127 nations for 2003, the most recent year for which data are available. The report also updates data in earlier reports in instances where data have been revised. Thirty-eight components and subcomponents are used to construct a summary index and to measure the degree of economic freedom in five areas: (1) size of government; (2) legal structure and protection of property rights; (3) access to sound money; (4) international exchange; and (5) regulation. The annual report is published by Canada’s Fraser Institute, in conjunction with independent research and educational institutes in over 60 nations.
