      Economic Freedom and Welfare offers an extensive review of market-oriented economic reforms since , and considers the question of whether more liberal economic policy yields greater social welfare. The author demonstrates that, despite the widespread uniformity of economic policy across countries over the past 45 years, welfare differences persist.

    Now in its 25th edition, the Index of Economic Freedom examines economic policy developments in countries. Countries are graded and ranked on 12 measures of economic freedom .   In this provocative book, Stein Ringen argues that the world's democracies are failing to live up to their ideals--the United States and Great Britain most especially. The core value of democracy, he contends, is freedom, the freedom to live a good life according to one's own choosing. Yet he shows that democracy's freedom is on the decline.
