How to Move from an Entitlement State to a Free Market (Video)

by | Feb 22, 2016 | Welfare

How the left transformed America from an essentially free market into a regulatory entitlement state and discusses how supporters of capitalism can develop an even more persuasive moral narrative of our own.

What ideas have made the entitlement state sacrosanct? How do we convince Americans that need truly isn’t a claim on other people’s wealth? In this talk, Don Watkins examines how, over a hundred years ago, the left transformed America from an essentially free market into a regulatory entitlement state and discusses how supporters of capitalism can develop an even more persuasive moral narrative of our own — one that will change the debate over entitlements from how to save them to how to end them.

 

Don Watkins has spent the last two decades championing liberty, whether through best-selling books like Free Market Revolution and Equal is Unfair, speaking to audiences across the United States, or working with individuals and companies to help them become better advocates for freedom.
