Entrepreneurship, personal responsibility, and upward mobility: These traditions are at the heart of the free enterprise system, and have long been central to America’s culture. In his new book, Arthur Brooks, President of the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research, examine how these traditions have been weakened in recent years. He explains that this trend cannot be reversed through materialistic appeals about the economic efficiency of capitalism. Rather, free enterprise requires a moral defense rooted in the ideals of earned success, equality of opportunity, charity, and basic fairness.
Both a moral manifesto and a prescription for concrete policy changes, The road to freedom aims to help Americans in all walks of life translate the philosophy of free enterprise into action, to restore both our nation’s greatness and our own well-being in the process.
