Riassunto: The Joy of Freedom: An Economist's Odyssey isn't a dry tome about free market economics: it brings the idea of freedom to life through stories of people who have discovered it in their own lives. David Henderson brings together these stories as never before, celebrating those in American society -- and around the world -- who are fighting to get the government off their backs. The cause of freedom led David Henderson to join the Reagan administration as a senior economist with the Council of Economic Advisers, to become the economics editor for the National Review, and to make the case for freedom in dozens of articles in Fortune, the Wall Street Journal, and Red Herring. In this book, written as an intellectual sequel to Milton Friedman's legendary Free to Choose, Henderson tells the stories of freedom with extraordinary power, illustrating the centrality of freedom to a well-run economy and a good society. Henderson's stories may be a revelation; for example, he shows how property rights have been used to protect wildlife, from elephants to hawks.
Dal retro di copertina:
Freedom. Freedom from government meddling and taxation. Freedom of association. These freedoms are inseparable, and they are the engines of human progress. A simple idea? Perhaps. Yet this simple idea has been responsible for more human happiness than any other.
In The Joy of Freedom, David R. Henderson shines a light on freedom at work in every corner of human life, making the most powerful case for free markets since Milton and Rose Friedman's Free to Choose. Along the way, he demolishes the conventional "wisdom" that has justified government's role in environmental regulation, education, social security, and healthcare; and shows once and for all why government programs perpetuate poverty instead of eliminating it.
Forget the "dismal science": Economist Henderson writes with passion about the joyous science. You will always know where he stands: with freedom, and against tyranny-in any guise.Free and healthy, at half the cost How deregulation and the Internet can make healthcare more competitive-and less expensive Nature's best friend: property rights How property rights are protecting wildlife, from elephants to hawks Interviewing Ralph Nader Nader defends regulations that kill thousands of people every year Governments promote racism and free markets combat it Some fascinating stories on South Africa, the United States, and Schindler's List Beyond public schools: education in a free society The 10 most important things you've learned Free markets: empowering the poor, worldwide Property ownership: the best solution for abolishing hunger and poverty
The world's most powerful idea: for real joy, you need real freedom.
The Joy of Freedom: An Economist's Odyssey brings free market economics to life through stories of those who have discovered it in their own lives. David R. Henderson, one of the world's most vigorous advocates of free markets, celebrates those in American society-and around the world-who are fighting to get the government off their backs.
No writer has more masterfully illustrated the centrality of freedom and enlightened self-interest to a well-run economy—and a good society. Henderson demonstrates the power—and the potential—of free markets to improve the environment, education, health, community, culture, and every other aspect of life that matters. This plain-speaking book crystallizes the inherent contradictions between government and freedom, showing why even the most well-intentioned governments can deliver nothing but disaster.
For those who already believe in free markets, this book offers powerful ammunition; for those who are skeptical, it will be a revelation."The Joy of Freedom is a quasi-autobiographical clarion call for a free society. It is passionate and eloquent, yet at the same time, thoughtful, informed, and profound. A splendid statement of the moral case for a free society, at the same time it is an informed and comprehensive survey of its practical virtues and of the harm done by widespread government intervention. "—Milton Friedman
