(score)
in 2017

Between 2012 and 2017, index of economic freedom in Australia was decreasing on average by 0.30 % each year, although before that, it grew from 82.2 score in 2008 to 83.1 score in 2012.

Economic freedom is the fundamental right of every human to control his or her own labor and property. In an economically free society, individuals are free to work, produce, consume, and invest in any way they please, with that freedom both protected by the state and unconstrained by the state. In economically free societies, governments allow labor, capital and goods to move freely, and refrain from coercion or constraint of liberty beyond the extent necessary to protect and maintain liberty itself. 100 represents the maximum freedom.
