(Before It's News)

Which state is the freest? Which state the least free? Which one has the most lightly taxed and regulated economy? Which states protect personal freedoms the best and the worst? How does your state fare? Is it among the freest or most coercive? Such questions have occurred to many people who care about limited government. Now we have answers. The newly published 2016 edition of Freedom in the 50 States presents a completely revised and updated ranking of the American states based on how their policies promote freedom in the fiscal, regulatory, and personal realms. The authors have gathered data on more than 230 variables to measure freedom now and in the past. They go beyond describing policies and analyze why some states have smaller and better governments. Freedom in the 50 States is an essential work for anyone interested in state policy and in advancing a better understanding of a free society. Join us to meet the authors and hear about the development of this remarkable research as well as which states policymakers should emulate, and which states need the most reform.
