The Moral Case

Arthur Brooks, Stossel, and the Moral Case for Free Enterprise

Dr. Arthur Brooks is a name and a man you ought to know. He is the president of the American Enterprise Institute in Washington D.C., and one of the most articulate defenders of free market economics on the planet. Dr. Brooks has written several important books in the past 5 years, and I simply could not recommend them more highly to you.

Appearing last night on John Stossel’s Fox Business Network show, Stossel, Dr. Brooks explained to the host why allowing the federal government to redistribute more and more of the nation’s wealth is immoral and a recipe for disaster.
