According to new data from the Freedom Index, Georgia is in 27th place which is four places worse than last year. As analysts suggest this is the result of intensive expenditure of state resources. There are 42 indicators according to which research is distributed into five groups. There is the size of government, legislation and property rights, the availability of hard currency, freedom of international trade and the regulation of industrial, labour and credit markets. At the head of the Freedom Index rating is Hong Kong which has held this position since 1970. Next comes Singapore, third is New Zealand followed by Switzerland, Australia, Canada, Chile, and Great Britain.
