Description

Presented by Antony Davies and the New Jersey Council for Economic Education.

The news promotes the idea that the world is getting worse; the facts don’t support this. Violence in the US is down 70% and poor Americans today live better than middle-class Americans did 100 years ago. World poverty has dropped from over 95% to less than 10%, inequality is falling and the environment is getting cleaner

Further understand what economic institutions are, how they are measured and why they lead to a more free society with greater respect for human rights.
