Freedom or Equality: The Key to Prosperity Through Social Capitalism
Capitalism offers greater prosperity and opportunity for everyone, while socialism, unnecessary interventionism, and other choices promise equal outcomes but inevitably fail. The findings of The Heritage Foundation’s annual Index of Economic Freedom reaffirm the truth of this statement year after year. A complete government takeover of healthcare, for example, would mean less competition among providers and a greater degree of statist intervention that would translate into lower quality healthcare treatment systems, less research, and fewer innovations. Fortunately, it is not too late to fix or avoid these problems. Join us for a discussion with author and internationally recognized economist Daniel Lacalle and Robert E. Moffit, Ph.D., Director of the Center for Health Policy Studies at the Heritage Foundation.
