The Monetary Freedom index for Guinea-Bissau from The Heritage Foundation reflects the stability of prices in Guinea-Bissau and the use of price controls by the government. Price stability with minimal price controls is the ideal state for the free market.
Definition: The score for the Monetary freedom index is based on two factors: the weighted average inflation rate for the most recent three years and price controls. Higher index values denote price stability without microeconomic intervention.
