A Non So Free Common Market

Mercosur is officially the most closed open market in the world.

Brazil, the largest economy in the group ranks 90 out of 153 countries in the 2005 Index of Economic Freedom by the Heritage Foundation.

Argentina takes the 114 spot.

Only tiny Uruguay ranks on the top 50% in the position 43.

If you have any doubts consider the newest addition to Mercosur, Venezuela: It ranks 146, sandwiched between Haiti and Uzbekistan.
