Commentary: A New Birth of Economic Freedom for Asia
Friday, 28 September 2012 18:55

Original version is published on The Wall Street Journal, http://online.wsj.com by Razeen Sally

Razeen Sally is right in saying that the constraints on growth stem from too much intervention in the market, not too little regulation. Freedom and prosperity have bloomed on Asian soil because government interventions have been curtailed and markets unleashed. The Asian miracle is not the product of superior technocratic minds who concocted industrial policies to promote targeted sectors. Indeed, there is scant evidence that such social engineering worked. Limited government—a strong but small state that performs its core functions well—and free markets at home and free trade abroad: These are the ingredients for a new Asian century.

Economic Freedom Network agrees with his vision and that is why the 2012 EFN Asia conference intends to discuss the phenomenon of populism and to jointly search for ways how free market economists can tackle the negative influence of populist policies and how populists politicians can be drawn into more substantive debates which assess the outcomes of the proposed public policy measures.

Economic Freedom of the World Report 2012
Friday, 21 September 2012 10:14

In the chain-linked index, average economic freedom rose from 5.30 (out of 10) in 1980 to 6.88 in 2007. It then fell for two consecutive years, resulting in a score of 6.79 in 2009 but has risen slightly to 6.83 in 2010, the most recent year available. It appears that responses to the economic crisis have reduced economic freedom in the short term and perhaps prosperity over the long term, but the upward movement this year is encouraging.

In this year’s index, Hong Kong retains the highest rating for economic freedom, 8.90 out of 10. The other top 10 nations are: Singapore, 8.69; New Zealand, 8.36; Switzerland, 8.24; Australia, 7.97; Canada, 7.97; Bahrain, 7.94; Mauritius, 7.90; Finland, 7.88; and Chile, 7.84. The rankings (and scores) of other large economies in this year’s index are the United Kingdom, 12th (7.75); the United States, 18th (7.69); Japan, 20th (7.64); Germany, 31st (7.52); France, 47th (7.32); Italy, 83rd (6.77); Mexico, 91st, (6.66); Russia, 95th (6.56); Brazil, 105th (6.37); China, 107th (6.35); and India, 111th (6.26).
