Don´t trust in indexes

Forbes came out with „Best Countries for Business“ ranking. While in the category of property rights (38) position of Slovakia (behind most surrounding countries) is understandable, in personal freedom ranking (1) together with the USA, Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark or Austria much less. What´s more, these all parts of the world share common level according to Forbes. Are people in Slovakia allowed to hold a gun, smoke a joint? Can people in Sweden go to a store and buy Pilsener or vodka? Can people in Austria do shopping on Sundays? There´s something wrong with indexes.
