The most surprising thing about the study, according to its author James Gwartney, a professor of economics at Florida State University, is the importance of legal structure as the key to maximum performance for an economy. "It turns out," he told me in a recent interview, "that the legal system - the rule of law, security of property rights, an independent judiciary, and an impartial court system - is the most important function of government, and the central element of both economic freedom and a civil society, and is far more statistically significant than the other variables."

Gwartney pointed to a number of countries that lack a decent legal system, and as a result suffer from corruption,insecure property rights, poorly enforced contracts, and inconsistent regulatory environments, particularly in Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East.

Gwartney can discuss the kinds of macroeconomic issues that are typically discussed in election years, such as taxes, budget deficits, monetary policy and unemployment.
"This election is vitally important because the debt-to-income ratio of both the federal government and household sectors are at historic highs, and this has undermined the ability of traditional policy tools to stimulate the economy," Gwartney said.
