Grade Level: 7-12+
Can you imagine not being able to pursue the livelihood you'd like? Growing up in Czechoslovakia, controlled by the communistic Soviet Union, there was very little freedom or opportunity. Even after liberation brought democracy and the eventual split into two separate countries, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, times were tough.
But with the right changes, with increased economic freedom, things began to look up for Katarina Rybarikova and her family in Slovakia. Katarina's idea? To bring the Paul Frank brand, with its distinctive monkey logo, to Europe.
Now the family business…is Monkey Business.
This DVD contains a bonus interview with the authors of the Fraser Institute's Economic Freedom of the World Report, explaining how the index works and the correlations they've discovered between economic freedom and people's well-being.
