Be sure to catch this video of AEI president Arthur Brooks on CNBC’s SquawkBox yesterday: More about Arthur’s forthcoming book, Road to Freedom:
The Road to Freedom explains how mainstream Americans, who overwhelmingly support an opportunity society, can win power back in 2012. It will build on the key themes of The Battle by explaining how free enterprise principles can be translated into a governing philosophy, substantive policies, and tangible reform. Central to this effort, The Road to Freedom establishes the moral imperative of free enterprise. By appealing to the writings of the Founders, social science research, and public opinion data, the book demonstrates that free enterprise embodies the American notions of fairness and service—and allows each individual to live a flourishing and prosperous life. In The Road to Freedom, you will learn:
- Why America’s culture of entrepreneurship is under attack and what you can do about it;
- The secret behind true happiness, and why only free enterprise supports achieving it;
- How the free enterprise system takes care of the poor and vulnerable and how to prove it;
- Today’s five most pressing domestic policy problems and what can we do to solve them.
