Please join us for the release of the Mercatus Center at George Mason University’s latest edition of “Freedom in the 50 States: An Index of Personal and Economic Freedom.”

The index is a comprehensive ranking of the American states based on policies affecting individual freedoms in the economic, social, and personal spheres.

The authors will reveal the state rankings, including the top five most- and least-free states. This will be followed by a panel discussion in which the study’s authors and other state policy experts discuss what the states’ rankings mean for the prosperity of their residents. The discussion will be moderated by Jim Musser, Director of Economic Education, Mercatus Center at George Mason University.

This event will be live streamed. Please visit this page on the day of the event and click "Watch the Live Webcast." Here is the link http://www.video-files.com/live/platform/mercatus_player.html
