Prosperity Index National success is about more than just wealth. And yet, traditionally we have used narrow measures of wealth (such as GDP) as our benchmark to determine the success of nations. The Prosperity Index goes beyond GDP to measure countries’ success against a broad set of metrics covering areas such as health, education, opportunity, social capital, personal freedom, and more. The Prosperity Index is the only global index that measures national prosperity based on both wealth and wellbeing (objective and subjective data). The Index seeks to redeﬁne the concept of national prosperity to include, as a matter of fundamental importance, factors such as democratic governance, entrepreneurial opportunity, and social cohesion. It aims to spark debate and to encourage policy-makers, scholars, the media, and the interested public to take an holistic view of prosperity and to better understand how it is created.

CATO Economic Freedom of the World Global economic freedom increased slightly in this year’s report, but remains below its peak level of 6.92 in 2007. The average score increased to 6.86 in 2013, the most recent year for which data is available. In this year’s index, Hong Kong retains the highest rating for economic freedom, 8.97 out of 10. The rest of this year’s top scores are Singapore, 8.52; New Zealand, 8.19; Switzerland, 8.16; United Arab Emirates, 8.15; Mauritius, 8.08; Jordan, 7.93; Ireland, 7.90; Canada, 7.89; and the United Kingdom and Chile at 7.87. The United States, once considered a bastion of economic freedom, now ranks 16th in the world with a score of 7.73. Due to a weakening rule of law, increasing regulation, and the ramifications of wars on terrorism and drugs, the United States has seen its economic freedom score plummet in recent years, compared to 2000 when it ranked second globally.
