Ukraine a Borderline Case on 2008 Index of Economic Freedom
This year’s Index of Economic Freedom, compiled by The Heritage Foundation and The Wall Street Journal, features Ukraine as one step from the "Repressed" economies of Russia, Vietnam and Guyana.
The Index rates countries based on ten freedoms: business freedom, trade freedom, fiscal freedom, freedom from government, monetary freedom, investment freedom, financial freedom, property freedom, freedom from corruption and labor freedom.
Ukraine ranks a dismal 133rd out of the 157 countries surveyed, and occupies the last slot in the "Mostly Unfree" category.
