155 How did Albuquerque rank in “Doing Business in North America 2019”?

On this week’s show, Paul sits down with Steven Slivinski with the Center for the Study of Economic Liberty at Arizona State University. Steven and his organization recently published the first-ever “Doing Business North America 2019” report which is modeled on a similar report done by the World Bank but on a global basis.

In Steven’s report, he explains the methodology and what cities throughout North America are included. Paul and Steven discuss Albuquerque’s results (it is the only New Mexico city included) in some detail.  Interestingly, New Mexico actually fares reasonably well in the index (available here).
