The Monetary Freedom index for Kuwait from The Heritage Foundation reflects the stability of prices in Kuwait 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.
