How Far Free Markets Have Come

With all the talk of bailouts, nationalizations, and international regulations, it’s easy to forget how many countries have taken significant strides to free their economies in the past few decades. For a review of those successes, and for lessons on how those reforms were achieved, check out the new book, How To Do It: Lessons from Successful Reforms in CEE. Topics covered include cutting corporate taxes, establishing flat tax systems, privatizing state assets, and creating stable currencies. The book is published by Germany’s Friedrich Naumann Foundation, and includes contributions from the Lithuanian Free Market Institute, F.A. Hayek Foundation (Slovakia), Estonian Free Society Institute, Liberalni Institute (Czech Republic), and the Institute for Market Economics (Bulgaria).
