MONTREAL, March 20, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The recent global economic
crisis was an opportunity for many to blame capitalism for the problems
with financial derivatives. Steve Forbes, John Allison, Larry Reed and
Michael Fairbanks were quick to answer these criticisms and to share
their profound convictions regarding the virtues of the free market.
These four public figures are among the guests of the Free Markets
Series presented in 2012 as a part of The World Show, broadcast on PBS
Now it's your turn!
As a partner in this unique project, today the Montreal Economic
Institute (MEI) is launching FreeMarketSeries.com, a Web platform to host the in-depth interviews carried out with the 14
guests of the Free Markets Series and to provide viewers the
opportunity to comment on and share the videos through various social
networks. You can therefore help the spread of these ideas.
"I was delighted and honored to be part of a project bringing together
for the first time on television some of the movement's most
influential and dynamic intellectuals. The Free Markets Series is a
great opportunity to learn more about the social and economic system
that led to an improvement in living conditions that is unprecedented
in the history of humanity," says Steve Forbes.
The Free Markets Series consists of 14 interviews of close to thirty
minutes each, all conducted by host Bob Scully, who was recently named
"Person of the Year" by American Public Television.
The Montreal Economic Institute is an independent, non-partisan,
not-for-profit research and educational organization. Through its
publications and conferences, the MEI stimulates debate on public
policies in Canada by proposing wealth-creating reforms based on market
