The Cato Institute recently issued a ranking of economic freedom in the 50 U.S. states. Krugman thinks they’re defining freedom too narrowly, for surely workers in New York, where they have many protections, feel freer than workers elsewhere. He further suggests a positive correlation between economic freedom and infant mortality. These and other Krugman claims are ground into sausage.
