Political and Economic Freedom

In his book, 20:21 Vision, Bill Emmott makes mention of a report named Economic Freedom of the World, published annually by the Economic Freedom Network. This report ranks how much economic freedom exists in each of (at present) 123 countries, based on certain measures. I have long been convinced that political and economic freedoms serve to reinforce each other – especially that, when a country grants more economic freedoms, political freedoms are sure to follow, but also that political freedoms are essential for true economic ones. Anyway, check out the report, it’s worth the read.
