Audio lecture, American Enterprise Institute, August 11, 2009.
Why is the number of Americans who value free enterprise, and who understand its virtues and benefits declining–especially among students and younger citizens? Asked in an April Rasmussen poll to choose the better system between capitalism and socialism, 13 percent of respondents over 40 years of age chose socialism. For those under 30, this percentage rose to 33 percent.
In its inaugural 2009 Free Enterprise Lecture Series, AEI hopes to foster a discussion of the merits of free enterprise through a series of provocative and engaging seminars in a relaxed setting with some of AEI’s most renowned scholars.
