If you want to be prosperous, happy, live in a clean environment and enjoy civil liberties, the verdict is in: you need to live in a country that prizes free enterprise. Economic liberty is the key to pretty much every other human good. This video makes the case beautifully. The appalling fact, however, is that the United States, long a leader in economic freedom, has in recent years fallen back toward the middle of the pack. If that decline continues–if, for example, Barack Obama wins a second term–the vanguard of liberty will be somewhere else.
Kudos to the Charles Koch Foundation for producing the video.
