Description

A critical debate featuring Pulitzer Prize winner Hedrick Smith and President of the Ayn Rand Foundation Yaron Brook as they discuss how the economy came to be in its current state. Smith argues that a pro-business power shift in Washington and a change in the American business ethos away from stakeholder capitalism to shareholder capitalism has created a harmful economic divide in America. Brook counters that today's mess is a product, not of capitalism, but of empowering the government to restrict free enterprise and dole out favors to preferred groups.
