WSJ/Heritage Foundation – Index of Economic Freedom 2011

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on January 16, 2011

“Economic freedom advanced this year, regaining much of the momentum lost during the fiscal crisis and global recession. Many governments around the world have rededicated themselves to fiscal soundness, openness and reform, and the majority of countries are once again on a positive path to greater freedom. The 2011 Index of Economic Freedom reports on economic policy developments since the second half of 2009 in 183 economies. Based on 10 measures that evaluate openness, the rule of law, and competitiveness, the Index ranks economies according to their economic freedom. The principles of economic freedom emphasized in the Index are individual empowerment, non-discimination, and the promotion of competition.”
