Atlás Network and Matt Warner
Atlas Network, the global network of liberal foundations and think tanks, is a non-profit organisation working to secure fundamental rights to economic and personal freedom for all people. This work is carried out through its global network of strategic partners, with more than 500 Think Tanks in 90 countries. Thanks to their network of donors, they invest more than five million dollars annually in projects that seek to achieve positive social change in ideas, culture and policy; removing barriers to opportunity; and empowering people to live a life of choice.
Atlas Network is currently chaired by Matt Warner. Prior to becoming president, Warner held a number of political leadership positions in non-profit think tanks on issues such as energy, education and property rights. He is currently responsible for strategy, programming and staff management within Atlas Network and writes, speaks and studies on issues of economics, institution-building and non-profit management. In this capacity, he has edited the books Poverty and Freedom: Case Studies on Global Economic Development, where he coined the term “The Outsider’s Dilemma” to refer to the challenge of helping low-income countries develop without interfering with their path to prosperity. Warner’s last two published books are: Development with dignity self-determination, localization and the end of poverty and Navigating through turbulence, whose common thread focuses on enhancing human dignity through development that seeks to end global poverty.
Alicante, the city with the most economic freedom in Spain
Warner’s visit is organised by FundaLIb, the Foundation for the Advancement of Liberty. This organisation annually awards recognition to the most economically liberal city in Spain. In this sense and for the fourth consecutive year, FundaLIb has awarded this recognition to the city of Alicante. The Index of Economic Freedom of Spanish Cities (ILECE) analyses the economic freedom of the 50 most populated municipalities in the country based on a series of certain parameters.
The Foundation for the Promotion of Freedom was created in response to the growing need to articulate libertarian public policies together with a social and political dialogue that works, in turn, within the framework of a liberal democracy.
