A World Bank study of government regulations found that there are five countries around the world where it’s easier to do business than the United States: New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Denmark, and South Korea.

The study based their ratings on a dozen factors such as the ease of starting a business and employing workers to enforcing contracts and trading across borders. The sixth-place ranking of the United States this year is a slight improvement over its eighth-place finish a year ago.

Interestingly, despite all the concerns expressed by many about Brexit, the United Kingdom is rated as number 8 on the list this year. That’s better than some major EU countries such as Germany (22) and France (32).
