Economic Freedom and a Better Life

Economics professor Josh Hall explains that economic freedom leads to greater human well-being. If we look at average income, life expectancy, income of the poorest 10%, and other factors, we see that when governments let citizens make economic decisions for themselves, this leads to greater human flourishing.

    curious about life expectancy comparison of the bottom 10% of states rated by levels of economic freedom. The video didn’t include this, just the benefits of access to the political process and less corruption.

    Two examples I can think of are North and South Korea and East & West Germany.

    Inequality is not a problem. Perhaps libertarians should not treat it as one, even though all these facts are true.
