The rise in economic freedom in countries across the globe in recent decades has led to greater prosperity and improvements in the well-being of hundreds of millions of people. Economic Freedom in Action: Changing Lives profiles inspiring entrepreneurs from some of those countries and shows how increased opportunity has allowed them to build better futures for themselves and their communities. Join us to see a segment of the documentary from the Free to Choose Network, which will air on public television this fall.
