Vol. 5 - Created Equal (Free To Choose - 1980)
The Declaration of Independence says, ''all men are created equal.'' Friedman explains that this did not mean all persons should or will have equal talents or income. Equal opportunity to better one’s self, and the right to personally benefit from the gains realized, are consistent with freedom. Equality of results requires force. Taking from some to give to others destroys freedom and removes the incentive for creating new wealth. Friedman visits India, U.S. and Britain. Discussion Participants: Robert McKenzie, Moderator; Milton Friedman; Frances Fox Piven, British Ambassador to the United States, 1977-1979; Thomas Sowell, Professor of Economics, UCLA © 1980 / 57 min.
