About this video

The Index of Economic Freedom, published by the Heritage Foundation and the Wall Street Journal, is a global report that ranks the relationship between economic opportunity and prosperity by researching and analyzing the economic policies of different countries.  Although criticized by various leftist organizations, it has been a useful tool for academics, journalists, and investment bankers looking for information about the changes that economic freedom has brought to various nations around the world.  James Roberts is editor of the Index of Economic Freedom and the Research Fellow in Freedom and Growth at the Heritage Foundation's Center for International Trade and Economics.
