Free Enterprise Is A Moral Imperative

Dave Killion — November 4, 2012


Behold, the winner of the American Enterprise Institute’s 2012 Video Contest –

“We’re calling on everyone who loves America’s system of free enterprise to submit a short video (under two minutes) that sets forth its worth — not on the basis of political ideology or economic efficiency, but on the basis of simple moral truths, namely:

  • Free enterprise promotes earned success, which is the substance of lasting happiness.
  • Free enterprise promotes real fairness, based on merit and hard work.
  • Free enterprise does the most good for the most vulnerable by supplying both ample charity and unmatched opportunity.”

Clicking on the link will take you to the video contest gallery, where you can see not only the prize winners, but also 16 other notable entries. They are, individually and collectively, a stirring reminder of why libertarians like me are so fervent in our adherence to free market principles.


David says

Dave: thanks for this post. the video is very good and I think the moral argument for free enterprise is the best one.
