In high schools across the world, most students graduate without any exposure to the concepts of market economics. The Lithuanian Free Market Institute (LFMI), based in Vilnius, sought to change that by developing its Economics in 31 Hours textbook, which has been awarded this year’s prestigious $100,000 Templeton Freedom Award. The award, generously supported by the Templeton Religion Trust, was presented during Atlas Network’s Freedom Dinner on Nov. 10 in New York City at the historic Capitale.
