Nanny State Index in Politico

“The EU is becoming a worse place to eat, drink, vape and smoke,” writes EPICENTER, a network of six free-market think tanks, which has launched its annual Nanny State Index ranking EU countries in terms of “paternalistic overregulation.” Finland, the U.K. and Ireland are “the most oppressive” countries, while the Czech Republic and Germany are “the freest.”

 
 Nanny State Index in EurActiv

“Usually praised by the EU for its highly competitive economy, Finland came under attack by a group of free-market think tanks on Wednesday (10 May) for pushing “paternalistic lifestyle policies” aimed at curbing consumption of tobacco, alcohol and sugary drinks.”

Regulace potravin, alkoholických nápojů, tabákových výrobků a elektronických cigaret je podle něj nejvyšší ve Finsku, nejnižší v Česku.”
