Freedom’s Just Another Word For Crisis-Prone

        This article holds the perception that economic freedom is an evil and can not be trusted. The author uses empirical  data to analyse this core insight and further argues that freedom is another word for crisis.

     “So it seems that the Index of Economic Freedom in practice tells us little about the cost of abandoning free market policies and offers little proof that government intervention into the economy would either retard economic growth or contract political freedom. In actuality, this rather objective-looking index is a slip-shod measure that would seem to have no other purpose than to sell the neoliberal policies that brought on the current crisis, and to stand in the way of policies that might correct the crisis.”
