Debate: "Government: What Is Its Proper Role?"




A March 2011 debate between Miles Rapoport of the Demos Center and Yaron Brook of the Ayn Rand Center deals with the proper role of government intervention in our economy and our society.  The debaters were asked “The size and scope of government has become one of the most contested issues in American politics. What is government's proper role? Should it focus on protecting individual rights and free markets? Or on promoting equality and solving society's problems?” A video of the debate can be found below and at this link.
