MONTREAL, March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- 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 affiliate stations.
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 mechanisms.
