From Steve Forbes, the iconic editor in chief of Forbes Media, and Elizabeth Ames coauthors ofHow Capitalism Will Save Us comes a new way of thinking about the role of government and the morality of free markets. Americans today are at a turning point. Are we a coun'try founded on the values of freedom and limited gov'ernment, as envisioned by the founding fathers in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution? Or do we want to become a European-style socialist democ'racy? What best serves the public good freedom or Big Government? InFreedom Manifesto, Forbes and Ames offer a new twist on this historic debate. Today's bloated and bureau'cratic government, they argue, is anything but a force for compassion. Instead of assuring fairness, it promotes favoritism. Instead of furthering opportunity, it stifles economic growth. Instead of unleashing innovation and material abundance, its regulations and price controls create rigidity and scarcity. Not only are Big Govern'ment's inefficient and ever-expanding bureaucracies ill-equipped to deliver on their promises they are often guilty of the very greed, excess, and corruption routinely ascribed to the private sector.
