The most developed countries have more economic freedom than the least developed countries in all categories expect 'Fiscal Freedom' and 'Government Spending', suggesting that high taxes and high government spending is good for society.

Correlation and causation aren't the same thing, Viking. I think it's more likely that more developed countries can simply afford to have larger governments than undeveloped ones, due to the citizens being more productive. Which could still be considered causation when you think about it, rendering the first sentence of my post absolutely pointless.

Forget the first and last sentences of that paragraph.

Why do your posts always remind me of clickbait ads? Those never deliver what they promise either.

If the overwhelming majority of the nations in the graph end up "N/A" then that should tell you something.
