Economic Freedom of The World

The annual survey Economic Freedom of the World is an indicator produced by the Fraser Institute, a Canadian think tank which attempts to measure the degree of economic freedom in the world's nations. This indicator has been used in peer-reviewed studies some of which have found a range of beneficial effects of more economic freedom, but plays a role in the creation of financial crisis.

Economic Freedom of the World index has been more widely used than any other measure of economic freedom, because of its coverage of a longer time period.

Famous quotes containing the words the world, world, economic and/or freedom:

    Softly sweet in Lydian measures
    Soon he soothed his soul to pleasures.
    ‘War’, he sung, ‘is toil and trouble;
    Honour but an empty bubble.
    Never ending, still beginning,
    Fighting still, and still destroying;
    If the world be worth thy winning,
    Think, O think it worth enjoying.
    Lovely Thais sits beside thee,
    Take the good the Gods provide thee.’
    John Dryden (1631–1700)

    It is not in the world of ideas that life is lived. Life is lived for better or worse in life, and to a man in life, his life can be no more absurd than it can be the opposite of absurd, whatever that opposite may be.
    Archibald MacLeish (1892–1982)

    Until women learn to want economic independence ... and until they work out a way to get this independence without denying themselves the joys of love and motherhood, it seems to me feminism has no roots.
    Crystal Eastman (1881–1928)

    We are at war with the most dangerous enemy that has ever faced mankind in his long climb from the swamp to the stars, and it has been said if we lose that war, and in so doing lose this way of freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment that those who had the most to lose did the least to prevent its happening.
    Ronald Reagan (b. 1911)
