From Zambia to South Korea and from Slovakia to Chile, Economic Freedom in Action: Changing Lives travels the globe to profile inspiring entrepreneurs from nations that have increased economic freedom for their citizens. This rise in economic freedom has led to increased prosperity and longevity, allowing more people to rise out of poverty and build positive futures for themselves and their children. 

Hosted by author, economist and commentator Johan NorbergEconomic Freedom in Action: Changing Lives explores the very definition of economic freedom. By reviewing and explaining the findings of the latest Fraser Institute Economic Freedom of the World Annual Report, the documentary reveals — in personal and dramatic terms — the impact of increased economic freedom on the lives of ordinary citizens across the globe.
