TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Economic freedom has a greater impact than foreign aid in helping people in poor nations escape poverty, according to Florida State University Economics Professor James Gwartney in Tallahassee, Fla, the co-author of the 10th edition of the Economic Freedom of the World: 2006 Annual Report to be released Thursday.
...
The cornerstones of economic freedom are personal choice, voluntary exchange, freedom to compete and security of privately owned property, according to Gwartney, who also serves as the director of the Stavros Center for Economic Education at FSU.
"The demand for foreign aid is typically made in the absence of any empirical evidence that it leads to benefits for recipient nations and without asking whether there are better approaches to poverty reduction for the international community to support," Gwartney said.
...
That's good news particularly for the poorest of the poor, according to Gwartney, who has served as an author of the report since its inception in 1996.
...
"The bottom line is that the quality of life is higher for those who reside in economies that are more free," Gwartney said.
...
Gwartney and Lawson used 38 components to measure the degree of economic freedom in five areas: size of government; legal structure and protection of property rights; access to sound money; international exchange; and regulation.
