OVERVIEW: Trusters of expansive intrusive government sometimes claim that freedom or capitalism are tough on the poor. They claim that government interventions–such as violent redistribution or “progressive” taxation–are necessary to help the plight of the poor.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Government meddling is a constant source and cause of human poverty and misery. Free markets lift the poor out of misery. In this course, the data and science will be delivered in a refreshing, easy-to-follow, manner.

See you there!
