Bill Gilles, the National Director of CFACT, was in Madison, WI Monday, April 19, 2010 to address the UW CFACT chapter. The subject? Economic Freedom. An issue that is hot on everyone’s minds. Gilles discussed the correlations between economic freedom and other aspects of living standards like child mortality, income, literacy rates, and even crime. Countries with higher economic freedom have higher incomes, lower crime, live longer and are healthier!
