Economic Freedom and Poverty: An Economic Analysis
Poverty is related to economic growth and economic inequality. Economic growth and economic inequality in their turn are dependent on economic institutions. An important standard for economic institutions is ‘economic freedom’ as measured by the Fraser Institute and Heritage Foundation. In this paper, we well see which aspects of economic freedom advance poverty in countries or slow it down, through the measure of economic growth and inequality.
