The Locker Room

Making the moral case for markets

Posted by Mitch Kokai at 4:29 PM

Critics of the free-market perspective often argue that people who support markets over government action favor greedy businessmen and profits over the public interest.

Dwight Lee, professor of global markets and freedom at Southern Methodist University, offered a different perspective during today's presentation to the John Locke Foundation's Shaftesbury Society. Lee focused on the importance of making the admittedly difficult moral case for markets.

In the video clip below, Lee explains how market forces would work far better than charity in helping Haitian earthquake victims.
