“At all costs” was the approach of responding to the pandemic of most governments. We all know and feel the results. But other than complaining and identifying scapegoats, the Free Market Road Show discusses Ways Out of the Gridlock. We turn our attention to the sensitivity of individual and entrepreneurial freedom and civil rights and how these are the foundations of recovery.
Still in an online mode, the FMRS “tours” all over Europe, pays visits to Iceland, Israel, the Americas, and the Caucasus, and features prominent keynote speakers from all over the world. About 100 leading think-tanks and universities are involved, leading business people, outstanding scholars, policy experts, and journalists discuss openly the many aspects of the crisis.
Recent developments in Europe have seen a rise in populism, government largesse, nationalism, and state intervention. Policies proven to be ineffective and immoral are making a comeback in a general sense of malaise that the problems of our time can be addressed only by state action.
It is a pessimistic and defeatist worldview that seeks society’s salvation by assaulting private property, individual freedom, and free markets. In other words, an assault on the capitalist order.
