Admir Čavalić is the founder and director of “Multi,” the pioneer and biggest libertarian association in Bosnia and Herzegovina. As a young student of economics, he began reading the works of Milton Friedman, which motivated him to make a documentary called “Economy,” which was the first Bosnian documentary expressing liberal economic solutions. Čavalić gathered respectable university professors from around the country and in 60 minutes presented the liberal economic agenda for the prosperity of the domestic economy.
The movie had several live premieres, with the presence of thousands of viewers and more than 11,000 views on YouTube. Čavalić is the author of numerous projects and has organized dozens of events (with more than 10,000 participants) that promote the ideas of liberty.
