Economic Freedom in Australia
With many businesses and individuals suffering financial hardships due to COVID-19 restrictions, it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that we are living in the most prosperous time in human history.

Economic freedom is a fundamental human right: each individual should have the freedom to control his or her own property and labour. In economically free societies, individuals may work, produce, consume, and invest as they choose.
