The Economic Freedom Network is a coalition of more than 70 free market think tanks co-ordinated by the Canadian based Fraser Institute.[1]

Economic freedom is the extent to which one can pursue economic activity without interference from government. Economic freedom is built upon personal choice, voluntary exchange, the right to keep what you earn, and the security of your property rights""[2]

The Network shares a number of members in common with the London based Stockholm Network which is larger but includes only European think tanks. For example the following members are held in common:
