The annual peer-reviewed Economic Freedom of the World Annual Report is released in Malaysia by IDEAS, and is produced by the Fraser Institute, Canada’s leading public policy think-tank, in cooperation with independent institutes in 90 nations and territories.

The Economic Freedom of the World report uses 42 different measures to create an index ranking countries around the world based on policies that encourage economic freedom. The cornerstones of economic freedom are personal choice, voluntary exchange, freedom to compete, and security of private property. Economic freedom is measured in five different areas: (1) size of government, (2) legal structure and security of property rights, (3) access to sound money, (4) freedom to trade internationally, and (5) regulation of credit, labor, and business.
