And Yet, the Market Still Quietly Ends Poverty

Time for a note of long-term optimism. Walter Williams writes about how, contra Ross Perot, we are not becoming a nation of “hamburger flippers” and the poor are not getting poorer. (Thanks FFF).

Miraculously, despite the best efforts of the state and the anti-market left (both Dem. and Repub. varieties), people continue to work hard and build a richer nation, one day at a time, by gradually improving their own life and that of their families and those around them. Like grass growing up through cracks in the pavement, freedom keeps quietly breaking through.
