As President Reagan said, “Freedom is never more than one generation from extinction.” Sure enough, a generation after his presidency, economic freedom suddenly has fallen out of favor with young people, largely because of left-wing dominance on America’s campuses and in our popular culture.
In this video, Heritage sends young people a simple message about capitalism: you need it to survive. Of course, capitalism needs young people too, or both will fail. That is why The Heritage Foundation is launching the speakers series “Free Markets: The Ethical Economic Choice” to remind young people about the blessings of liberty.
The series will illustrate that no other system has lifted more people out of poverty or better empowered them to pursue their dreams. Dr. Walter Williams, the John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason University, kicked off this series, with more distinguished speakers to come.
We have the ability to share the best minds with a new generation because of your steadfast support. Thank you for standing with us as we preserve economic freedom for the next generation of Americans.
What is the best way to show young Americans the importance of economic freedom?
