FMF Invitation: Economic Freedom of the World 2015 Worldwide Launch

You are invited to the Worldwide Launch of the Economic Freedom of the World 2015 Report, Monday, 14 September 2015, at the Free Market Foundation.

INVITATION

ECONOMIC FREEDOM OF THE WORLD – 2015

WORLDWIDE LAUNCH

 

On the most comprehensive measure of economic freedom available,

a decade ago South Africa ranked 41 out of 144 countries measured.

Last year, we ranked a poor 93 out of 153 countries measured

– a substantive deterioration in just over ten years.

Where will SA fall in this most recent study?

 

The 2015 Report analyses 157 countries in detail and ranks them in order of their level of economic freedom and includes a special chapter on Economic freedom, individual perceptions of life control, and life satisfaction.

A declining economic freedom ranking matters to each and every one of us. It affects every aspect of our lives. A massive fall in the rankings means that all South Africans are losing on the key ingredients of economic freedom, which are choice, voluntary exchange, freedom to compete, and protection of persons and property.

It is high time for South Africa to adopt policies that will improve its ranking and attract investors instead of driving them away.

To find out where South Africa is currently placed in the rankings, join us for the launch of Economic Freedom of the World: 2015 Annual Report.

Printing, distribution and launch sponsored by Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Liberty.

The Fraser Institute, Canada, produces the annual Economic Freedom of the World report in co-operation with the Economic Freedom Network, a group of independent research and educational institutes in nearly 90 nations and territories. It’s the world’s premier measurement of economic freedom, using 42 distinct variables to create an index, ranking countries based on economic freedom, which is measured in five areas: size of government, legal structure and security of property rights, access to sound money, freedom to trade internationally, and regulation of credit, labour and business.

Note:

The FMF is an independent, non-profit, public benefit organisation, created in 1975 by pro-free market business and civil society national bodies to work for a non-racial, free and prosperous South Africa. As a policy organisation it promotes sound economic policies and the principles of good law. As a think tank it seeks and puts forward solutions to some of the country’s most pressing problems: unemployment, poverty, growth, education, health care, electricity supply, and more. The FMF was instrumental in the post-apartheid negotiations and directly influenced the Constitutional Commission to include the property rights clause: a critical cornerstone of economic freedom.

The FMF has a wealth of information in papers, articles and opinion pieces available on the website which can influence the public debate and present alternative policies to the people of South Africa. Please look at our website www.freemarketfoundation.com.
