Robert Genetski, Ph.D., discusses the evidence from 40 countries – large and small, rich and poor. The analysis shows people throughout the world are remarkably similar in how they respond to alternative economic policies. Regardless of culture or location, people respond to policies promoting economic freedom in the most creative and productive ways imaginable. Freedom allows individuals to unleash their creative potential and maximize their God-given talents. It is by unleashing this creative potential that we discover the true force for enhancing the wealth of individuals and, in turn, the wealth of nations.
