Does your right to pursue your own path coincide with the rights of others to do the same?
Sylvia Banda knows the secret to success. She's taken her passion for food and cooking and turned it into one of the strongest food service corporations in the African Republic of Zambia.
She started by making fritters to sell to her classmates, then opened her own restaurant after college. On opening day, she realized there was more to running a food business than just cooking—she'd forgotten to have chairs for her customers! She bartered with a neighbor for chairs and eventually became a successful food entrepreneur who's helping other Zambians improve their lives.
Changes in economic policies made the difference for Sylvia and other Zambians. What kinds of changes could explain the rise from one of the lowest ranked countries on the Economic Freedom Index to being equal to Poland and France in just 15 years?
Find out as Sylvia shares her "secret" recipe for success.
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.
