Least Free State in the US


United States of AmericaResearch conducted at George Mason University’s Mercatus Center has found New York to be the ”least free state in the Union” according to a set of criteria that weighs factors including individual freedoms and obligations to government, like taxes.

The study looked at “discal policy, regulatory policy, economic freedom and personal freedom” to determine average freedom by state, and New York- also known for its oppressive income gap (1% of New York City, for instance, controls a staggering 44% of Gotham’s wealth)- came in dead last. Gun laws in New York are strict, there is currently no medical marijuana legality, gay marriage is currently struggling to pass the State’s Senate and spending on public services like welfare and infrastructure is “high above” national norms.

Given the sad statistics, it’s probably no surprise that migration to other states is at an all-time high.
