Capitalism = Human Well-Being
States that have higher “capitalism” ratings – or more freedom for their citizens – normally also have higher “average incomes”.
Studies have shown that:
- Citizens in high income states live longer, healthier lives
- Children growing up in high income states are far more likely to graduate high school and college
- People with higher levels of education report higher income earning potential, higher job satisfaction and higher overall happiness
- People in low income states suffer from the highest rates of mental illness
- Families in the highest income states experience lower divorce rates
- States with higher incomes have lower rates of violent crimes
