Free Markets

Friedman Quote 2

Free market capitalism is an essential element of a free society.  The alternative is command and control by the government–an entity quite ill-suited to make business and economic decisions that will have a profound effect on us all.

History is our proof.  Where markets have been most free, standards of living have been highest and prosperity greatest.  Where there is greater command and control, like Eastern Europe before the fall of the Iron Curtain, the people have suffered.

At the Steamboat Institute, we are Defenders of Capitalism!
