Why Bad Economics Won't Go Away

Room 185

Why are free market ideas still so unpopular? After all, they have logic and history on their side. Yet, pro-liberty advocates continue to fail in reducing the size and scope of government.

In this talk, Yaron Brook, executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute, identifies why people find free markets to difficult to accept and why statist policies seem to make so much sense. Using theoretical and historical examples, he makes the case for why the pro-liberty movement needs morality on its side to survive.
