A liberal economy, which means a high level of economic freedom, is essential for development, i.e. increasing prosperity and quality of life, while at the same time creating good conditions for work, entrepreneurship and one’s own life paths choices.
Freedom should be understood as the right to live our lives as we see fit, as long as we do not infringe on the freedom of others. Economic freedom is vital to other freedoms, and its restrictions can be a tool for making people dependent on the state or, in its extreme form, for repression. When there is no economic freedom or it is weak, the state has a strong influence on where we work, what professions we have access to, how much we earn, whether we get promoted, where we live, and whether we are able to provide for ourselves and our loved ones.
In Poland we still have a lot to do in the area of economic liberalism. In the rankings of economic freedom we are overtaken by many countries of Western Europe such as Switzerland, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden or Germany and also countries of our region such as Estonia, Lithuania or the Czech Republic. We want to change that.
