Hong Kong again topped the rankings of 151 countries and territories, followed by Singapore, New Zealand, and Switzerland in the Fraser Institute’s annual Economic Freedom of the World report. The United States, once considered a bastion of economic freedom, now ranks 17th in the world. “Unfortunately for the United States, we’ve seen overspending, weakening rule of law, and regulatory overkill on the part of the U.S. government, causing its economic freedom score to plummet in recent years.

“Middle income” is defined as having a per capita GDP income based on purchasing power parity (PPP) of $3,000 to $20,000, or $16,000 for other definitions.

“Middle-income trap” (MIT) is the phenomenon of some rapidly growing economies stagnating at middle-income levels and failing to graduate into high-income countries. This is brought about by growth slowdown after sometime.
