The 24th edition of the Index of Economic Freedom (www.heritage.org/index) evaluates economic conditions and government policies in 186 countries. Since its inception in 1995, the Index, an annual cross-country analysis by The Heritage Foundation, has tracked the progress of economic freedom around the globe and measured the impact of advancing economic liberty.
Like its predecessors, the 2018 Index provides compelling evidence of the dynamic benefits for individuals and societies from greater economic freedom. There is no single formula for overcoming challenges to economic development and maintaining prosperity, but one thing is clear: Around the world, governments that respect and promote openness and free markets provide greater opportunities for innovation, progress, and human flourishing.
Join us to examine the link between economic freedom and prosperity and for a discussion of the policy challenges we face around the world.
