From Gotham Gazette... [ed. note - does this surprise anyone?]

New York State is the Least Economically Free State in the Nation

A new report by the California-based Pacific Research Institute (PRI) and Forbes magazine has concluded that New York State is the least economically free state in the nation. The 2004 U.S. Economic Freedom Index ranked New York at or near the bottom of the list in four of five measures considered in the study: government size (50), welfare spending (50), regulatory (42), fiscal (47), and judicial (8).

The report can be found here.
