.. allow me to introduce you to one that makes a full-throated, unapologetic case in favor of laissez-faire. Free Market Revolution by Yaron Brook and Don Watkins (respectively, executive director of and a fellow at the Ayn Rand Institute) argues strongly and convincingly that the pursuit of self-interest—profit—is morally good and is the only path to progress and harmony .. our problems are rooted in vastly excessive government and we must cut it back to its proper functions before it’s too late.
.. Unfortunately, most people believe that the pursuit of profit is morally suspect if not downright evil. Therefore, they are easy targets for demagogues who tell them that the government must impose heavy taxes and numerous regulations to protect consumers against voracious capitalists .. destructive myths that capitalism is somehow dangerous but government power is benign.
.. nothing close to free markets operate in America today. Our economy is hampered with innumerable governmental mandates, prohibitions, taxes, subsidies, and special interest programs that waste resources, protect inefficiency, and retard progress. Readers not only learn how government obstructs the free market, but how the market’s price system can work, allocating resources to produce goods and services consumers desire the most and promoting innovations that make life better.
