It all starts with the dollar,

The amount of economic freedom that people have, is proportional to the amount of personal freedom they have. If you've read my past posts you know that the individual is the most important unit in a free economy, and economics is present in nearly every decision individuals make. So it stands to reason that if you tamper with economic freedom, (Capitalism)you also tamper with individual rights. Try looking up the countries with the most economic freedom sometime; then take a look at how the standard of living is in those countries. You'll find that the countries with the highest standard of living also have the most economic freedom.
