At the American Enterprise Institute, we recognize that free enterprise isn’t an economic alternative – it’s a moral imperative. But free enterprise needs defenders. That’s why AEI is proud to announce a $50,000 video contest. We’re calling on everyone who loves America’s system of free enterprise to submit a short video (under two minutes) that sets forth its worth — not on the basis of political ideology or economic efficiency, but on the basis of simple moral truths, namely:
  • Free enterprise promotes earned success, which is the substance of lasting happiness.
  • Free enterprise promotes real fairness, based on merit and hard work.
  • Free enterprise does the most good for the most vulnerable by supplying both ample charity and unmatched opportunity.
These themes are consonant with AEI’s mission and central to our multi-year campaign called the Road to Freedom Project. Prizes 1st prize: $40,000 2nd prize: $7,500 3rd prize: $2,500 Judges Finalists will be judged by a panel that so far includes:
