Financial freedoms decline, from the article:

The United States, long considered the standard bearer for economic freedom
among large industrial nations, has experienced a substantial decline in economic
freedom during the past decade. From 1980 to 2000, the United States was generally
rated the third freest economy in the world, ranking behind only Hong Kong and
Singapore. After increasing steadily during the period from 1980 to 2000, the chainlinked
EFW rating of the United States fell from 8.65 in 2000 to 8.21 in 2005 and
7.70 in 2010. The chain-linked ranking of the United States has fallen precipitously
from second in 2000 to eighth in 2005 and 19th in 2010 (unadjusted ranking of 18th).
