I’m out on the road right now—in DC at the moment—which makes writing a bit of a challenge. (This post is brought to you courtesy of my iPad). I’ll have thoughts on the GOP convention next week, so stay tuned. In the meantime, I’d like to hear from you. Which speeches do you think made the best case for economic freedom? Which made the worst?
Today’s economic outlook is troubling. But I, for one, don’t think it’s time to invest in canned food and bullets. As Burton Folsom reminds us, past generations have faced problems no less grim than our own. They avoided disaster by expanding freedom.
The hope for your generation is that you will meet the challenge of the loss of freedom today in the same way that the World War II generation and the Civil War generation did after war came and liberties were denied: They increased freedom, opened up our great human potential, and enjoyed the prosperity that followed.
