America has experienced a historic drop in economic freedom, here’s what you can do
After reading the Index, you’ll learn about the current state of economic freedom in America and around the world. And it doesn’t look good.
With the extraordinary restrictions and policies that have reduced or destroyed economic opportunity during the pandemic, economic freedom is declining across the globe. And America is no exception. The U.S. dropped from a high of fourth place in 1995 to 25th place—its lowest ranking to date.
This is a serious cause for alarm.
Reckless government overspending has resulted in mounting deficit and debt burdens in our nation. And the Biden administration’s pursuit of a radical agenda has undermined economic freedom and sparked historic inflation.
But the proven path to preserving and enhancing opportunity, prosperity, and individual well-being is the path of freedom.
That’s why The Heritage Foundation is fighting back.
As the nation’s most influential conservative think tank, The Heritage Foundation works each day to promote economic freedom and educate Americans across the country on economic issues.
Our more than 100 policy experts and researchers are invited to testify before Congress dozens of times throughout the year to provide principled solutions to our nation’s problems. And Heritage experts appear daily in America’s top news outlets and other media to educate and rally your fellow citizens.
But we can’t do this work alone. The threats to our economic freedom under the Biden administration are real—and there’s a lot at stake. That’s why we need your help.

You know that sound conservative policy is the best answer to our nation’s problems.
But the liberal left and the Washington Establishment have been blinded by fake news and a stubborn resolve to keep the status quo. This is unacceptable! They have to feel the heat—and that’s where Heritage Action for America comes in. Heritage Action’s lobbyists and grassroots activists put political pressure on legislators and lawmakers to get The Heritage Foundation’s policies across the finish line. Each and every day, Heritage Action is pressuring lawmakers to step it up and fix health care, stop amnesty, and pass welfare reform—or they’ll feel the heat at the polls. But we can’t do this without you.
Hold Washington’s feet to the fire with your gift to Heritage Action today!
