“Today, we live in the most prosperous time in human history. Poverty, sicknesses, and ignorance are receding throughout the world, due in large part to the advance of economic freedom. In 2015, the principles of economic freedom that have fueled this monumental progress are once again measured in the Index of Economic Freedom, an annual guide published by The Wall Street Journal and The Heritage Foundation, Washington’s No. 1 think tank.
The Index covers 10 freedoms – from property rights to entrepreneurship – in 186 countries. Each of the ten economic freedoms within these categories is graded on a scale of 0 to 100.”
