Idea Channel Discussion
Morality of the Free Market
This discussion features Dr. Karen Vaughn, Professor of Economics at George Mason University and Dr. Walter Williams, John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason University. Prominent Christians, including Pope John Paul II, are frequently critical of the free market system, insisting that it enriches some while oppressing many others. Walter Williams and Karen Vaughn suggest that because one amasses wealth by serving others, capitalism is potentially more "Christian" than the presumably more benevolent socialist systems.
