26: Richard Ebeling on the Moral Foundations for the Free Market

The free market is not widely understood by much of the public. This is painfully apparent when encountering discussions involving economics. Dr. Richard Ebeling joins us to discuss what the free market is and what it isn’t. He also makes the case for the moral foundation of individual freedom and choice that underlies free market economics. If you’re a defender of the free market, here’s your chance to stock up on philosophical ammunition.
