The Investment Freedom index for Norway from The Heritage Foundation measures the restrictions to investment activity both within the country and across borders. A higher score means fewer restrictions.
Definition: The Investment freedom index evaluates a variety of investment restrictions (burdensome bureaucracy, restrictions on land ownership, expropriation of investments without fair compensation, foreign exchange controls, capital control, security problems, a lack of basic investment infrastructure, etc.). Points are deducted from the ideal score of 100 for each of the restrictions found in a country’s investment regime.
