From the financial crisis to Obamacare to the budget debates, the size and scope of government is being debated across the country. One side calls for more regulation to foster equitable prosperity because the free market is out of control. The other side says government has grown too big and intrusive; we need to mitigate its power while rediscovering the founders’ principles. Dr. Yaron Brook, Executive Director of the Ayn Rand Institute, and Dr. David Callahan, Co-Founder of Demos, join Ford Hall Forum President Dominick Ianno to debate the fundamental social, economic, and moral ideas that underlie politics in America today.
This debate was recorded and hosted by Ford Hall Forum on September 29, 2011. For more about the Ford Hall Forum, see https://sites.suffolk.edu/fordhallforum/ and https://www.youtube.com/user/fordhallforum1908.
