Economic freedom EQUALS a better quality of life for all
Posted by James Franko on Monday, January 9, 2012

Okay, so this doesn't deal specifically with Kansas but it is a pretty good explanation of the work KPI does.

Around the world, the countries that are most economically free enjoy better health, longer life spans, a cleaner environment, and even their least well off populations have more money.  Why should it be any different in Kansas?

The answer - It wouldn't be any different!  The freer Kansans are to provide for themselves and their family, the better off the entire state will be.
