ECONOMIC FREEDOM THE CZECH REPUBLIC AND ITS NEIGHBORS

Lubos Marek, Michal Vrabec

Abstract


We analyze the Index of Economic Freedom in Czech Republic in our article. The Index of Economic Freedom is an indicator which defines and tries to measure the economic freedom of a country or a region. The most famous are the Index of Economic Freedom created by the Heritage Foundation and the Wall Street Journal and Economic Freedom of the World published by the Canadian Fraser Institute. To analyze the Czech Republic‘s position it is reasonable to take into account its neighbors and Visegrad Four as the closest group. It is also insightful to compare it with other countries from the European Union (EU). According to Economic Freedom summary rating in 2011 all these countries belong to the ―Top 60‖: Germany (19), Austria and Hungary share 27 place (before Sweden), the Slovak Republic (36), the Czech Republic (52) and Poland (59).
