- Higher deficits and debt mean we must confront entitlements and re-think the way government insurance creates perverse incentives that increase our dependence.
- Higher gas prices have nothing to do with Wall Street speculators.
- Higher polemics against limited government aren't going to restore our fiscal sanity.
- Higher taxes on soda will have little, if any, effect on our waistlines.
- Please join us one week from tomorrow, on Friday, April 29 at 4:00 p.m. Eastern for a special sneak preview of Free or Equal, a documentary from Free to Choose Media. In this one-hour film, Cato Senior Fellow Johan Norberg retraces Milton Friedman's steps from the trailblazing 1980 documentary Free to Choose to see how economic liberalization has transformed societies around the world. Norberg will introduce Free and Equal, and will answer questions following the screening. Complimentary registration is required of all attendees by noon Eastern on Thursday, April 28. Until then, please enjoy this preview:
And don't miss Milton Friedman's 1988 essay in the Cato Policy Report, "Using the Market for Social Development," an excellent primer to some of the topics addressed in the two films.
