In the spirit of the 2013 Upton Forum, this one-hour documentary examines the impact of increased economic freedom on the lives of ordinary people. The filmmakers traveled to countries as diverse as Chile and Zambia to profile entrepreneurs benefiting from increased economic freedom. The documentary also highlights the Economic Freedom of the World (EFW) index and features interviews with the report's authors, including former Beloit faculty member Josh Hall. Josh kindly agreed to join us for a virtual q&a after the screening.
Light refreshments will be served before the screening.
