PA Ranks 27th in Economic Freedom Among the 50 States

Some interesting findings in the latest edition of The Economic Freedom of North America produced by the Fraser Institute:
Alberta has the highest level of economic freedom among all Canadian provinces and U.S. and Mexican states, according to a new study released today by the Fraser Institute, an independent, non-partisan Canadian public policy think-tank.

Texas is the highest ranked U.S. state (tied for 3rd overall) while Coahuila de Zaragoza is the highest ranked Mexican state (tied with 21 other jurisdictions at 30th overall).

Pennsylvania ranks 27th of the 50 U.S. states in the report.
