Freedom's Unheard Call

Freedom       2001-06-09 
There is a surprising lack of freedom in the world. The Heritage Foundation/Wall Street Journal 2001 Index of Economic Freedom lists only 12 free countries out of 161 examined. That's only 7 percent of the world's countries. As 10 of the 12 free countries are among the world's smallest, freedom occupies less than 7 percent of the world's landmass.
