If you don't recall him, Phil Donohue was one of the TV blowhards from the past.
Here the great economist Milton Friedman explains why free markets and free trade produce the good life for the most people. This clip should be required watching for all the Congresscritters. Not that it would change their self-interested habit of passing economically-destructive legislation because it appeals to the economically-ignorant. But we can hope.
Watch this and pass it on.
