Economic Freedom Index: How free is the Philippines economy?
Economic Freedom Index
The Index of Economic Freedom is published annually by The Heritage Foundation, a Washington think tank. The Index covers 12 freedoms, which can be grouped into four broad categories:
- The rule of law (property rights, judicial effectiveness, and government integrity)
- Government size (tax burden, government spending, and fiscal health)
- Regulatory efficiency (business freedom, labor freedom, and monetary freedom)
- Market openness (trade freedom, investment freedom, and financial freedom)

Economic freedom in the Philippines has deteriorated over the past two years due mainly to worsening government integrity.
