Friday Interview: Making a Moral Case for Free Markets
RALEIGH — Critics often employ moral arguments in attacking free-market policies. They say people who advocate market-based solutions to life’s problems support greedy, profit-hungry businessmen instead of the public interest. Dwight Lee, William J. O’Neil professor of global markets and freedom at Southern Methodist University, says there’s a moral case to be made for markets. Lee addressed the importance and difficulty of making that case during a presentation to the John Locke Foundation’s Shaftesbury Society. He also spoke with Mitch Kokai for Carolina Journal Radio.
