Economics Does Not Lie: A Defense of the Free Market in a Time of Crisis

Guy Sorman

About the Program

Mr. Sorman argues that to get rid of the free market because it's imperfect would be a danegrous overreaction to recent events. Rebuilding trust in the market is where energy should be placed, because the benefits of free market capitalism, with the public sector in the wings, have far outweighed even the worst of cyclical downturns.  Mr. Sorman argues that free market capitalism has lifted almost a billion people across the globe out of poverty.
