The frontiers of economic freedom (2011)

Amartya Sen

“The idea of freedom is certainly linked to our freedom of choice. However, it is not enough to have permission to do something, it is necessary to be able to do it. Dignified employment and health cover are associated with economic freedom, Individual and economic freedom are complementary”. This is how the winner of the Nobel Prize for Economics, the Indian academic Amartya Sen (born in Bengal in 1933) opened the sixth edition of the Festival, presenting ideas worth listening to again and reconsidering, now more than ever.
