How does economic freedom benefit the Hispanic community in the United States? We want to hear from you!

Latinos open businesses at three times the national average and have the greatest purchasing power of any US ethnic group, yet we fail to realize the impact that economic freedom has in generating prosperity in our nation.

The LIBRE Initiative is searching coast to coast for the video that best illustrates the benefits of economic freedom. Here is your opportunity to share your views for a chance to win an iPad3!

But first, what is Economic Freedom?

Economic Freedom is the ability for each individual to profit from their own ideas and work, produce, consume, own, trade, and invest according to their own choices.In a free market system, opportunities aren’t limited by who you are or where your family comes from – you’re only limited by your imagination! Economic freedom empowers families to decide what is best for them, instead of having government bureaucrats control their lives.
