Government Unions and the Bankrupting of America

Government-workers’ unions have been political juggernauts in the U.S. since the unseen collective-bargaining-rights revolution of the 1960s and ’70s. These unions are different and more powerful than those that battle owners and managers in the private sector. To advance their interests, unions in the public sector have created cartels with their political allies, mostly in the Democratic Party, to the exclusion of the taxpaying public.

What’s So Great about Economic Freedom?

The current administration is obsessed with Income Inequality and offers greater regulation as a cure. The actual solution to this perceived problem is actually greater economic freedom. As this video and it’s supporting evidence shows that economic freedom is the cause of greater happiness for everyone.

Economic freedom involves more than just the freedom to buy and sell products and services. It allows us to be free in our interactions with other people. Economic freedom enables us to travel, to say what we want to say, to do what we want to do. Prof. Antony Davies shows how economic freedom is associated in the data with a number of positive indicators of a healthy country. For example, countries with more economic freedom tend to have higher GDP per capita, to take better care of the environment, and to be more equal across genders. In addition, countries with more economic freedom have less child labor. Economic freedom is important in healthy societies. It is about being free to make your own choices.
