The Center for Trade and Economics (CTE) at The Heritage Foundation provides state-of-the-art analytical and policy research on the role that free markets, the rule of law, and democratic institutions play in fostering economic growth in countries around the world. Its experts promote international economic policies that historically have advanced economic freedom and prosperity, not just for Americans but for people in countries as diverse as Singapore, Switzerland, Chile and Bahrain. CTE is internationally known for producing Heritage’s flagship product, the Index of Economic Freedom, co-published annually with the Wall Street Journal and now in its 16th edition. The Index tracks the march of economic freedom around the world, and in 179 countries. It is currently published in English, Spanish and Portuguese. In addition to that product, CTE analysts provide timely research and trade-related briefings for policymakers, investors, the media, and publics around the world. CTE’s work has become an integral part of the innovative policy solutions that Heritage offers on a range of challenges facing the U.S. economy in this ever-changing global economic environment.
