Just realised that my last video post might have been a bit too dry and dark, lacking depth, so to speak, on the benefits of an open opportunistic market. I’ve therefore attached below a short video from Friedman himself to round off the argument just a little.

I hope the video speaks for itself. Given the recent worrying news in Europe, it is worth remembering that markets, more often than not, do grow, that individuals, more often than not, operate at a profit, and that it is this aggregation of individual self-interest that leads us towards prosperity.
