Hong Kong top spot of world freest economy
January  12, 2012
Hong Kong has retained its position as the world's freest economy.
Singapore ranked second, followed by Australia, New Zealand and Switzerland.
The index evaluates economic freedom by looking at the rule of law, regulatory efficiency, the size of government and open markets.
The 2012 report said that economic freedom for the world as a whole had declined over the past year,  due to a large increase in government spending worldwide.
North America and Europe suffered declines in economic freedom over the past year, while economic freedom increased in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.
The US came 10th, down from ninth place in 2011.  Thank you Barak Hussein Obama.

October 4, 2014  
You have to see every battle as possibly the final battle.

October 30, 2014
Bloomberg News
Hong Kong government Plan C: a war of attrition.
Authorities are probably waiting for popular support for the movement to fade so police can take back the streets. The option of a negotiated settlement stalled.
The government won’t act until its own surveys show public support for the protesters has dropped sharply.

The Hong Kong government must find a way to end the disruption while averting the kind of brutal crackdown that tarnished China’s reputation in Tiananmen Square in 1989. Even if police manage eventually to clear the streets with minimal force, questions about democracy and economic inequality may spawn fresh protests until they are resolved.
