Economic Freedom of the World 2010 Philippine Edition

Economic Freedom of the World: 2010 Annual Report Philippine Edition

The Economic Freedom of the World: 2010 Report discusses the degree of economic freedom around the world based on a composite index that includes: size of government, legal structure and security of property rights, access to sound money, freedom to trade internationally and regulation of credit, labor and business in 141 nations. The report also compares economic freedom and other desirable outcomes, such as prosperity or quality of life, as measured by the UNDP Human Development report. It finds a strong correlation between economic freedom and various important developmental goals. The index has become an important tool to evaluate economic policy worldwide.
