Note 1- Note 1- Industry classifications based on U.S. Commerce department SIC names.

Note 2- FMS™ is "Free-Market Scholars."  FMS™ reflects agreement with views of noted free-market scholars (FMS™) such as Adam Smith (Wealth of the Nations, 1776) Frederick Hayek (Road to Serfdom, 1944), Milton Friedman (Why Government is the Problem, 1993), and Ludwig von Mises (Human Action, 1949).  Specific test items are derived from these and similar writings.  A low FMS™ score will substantially prevent the Political and Economic scores from ranking in the "Ideal Rating" position on the Scorecard.
