According to the Fraser Institute, a Canadian-based, global think tank, Economic Freedom (EF) is simply the ability for one to choose and decide “how to use their time and talents to shape their lives”. On a national level then, an economically free country is one that is not weighed down by bureaucracy, excessive regulations and restrictions, but rather, one that allows producers and sellers to compete freely and equally and, also allows consumers to choose freely. EF, extended to all, can generate positive social and economic outcomes.
