Freedom Manifesto captures the spirit of a new movement that is questioning old ideas about the moƠrality of government and markets for the first time since the Great Depression. Going beyond the familiar explanations and sound bites, the authors provide a fully developed framework of "first principles" for a true understanding of the real moral and ethical distinctions between more and less government. This timely and provocative book shows why free markets and liberty are the only way to a better future and a fair and humane society.--From publisher description
